2016 Brecon Syrah Adelaida Glenrose

We’ve gone all single vineyard on you with our latest offering. Glenrose has been the core of our Syrah since 2012 due to its signature smooth mouthfeel and opulent, almost meaty, fruit. In 2016 we finally crowbarred enough fruit out of its venerable custodian, a certain young mister Rose, to offer it in its own right. Yet, there is more! A meer smidgen of a hidden heritage varietal (Tannat 6.9%) adds length and complexity in  the perception of tannins.

92 Pts. purely domestic wine report. July 2018

 

“The nose is a rich, expressive prune plum, florals and spice box, candied cherry and dark chocolate liqueur. The palate is spiced plum, caramelized stone fruit, espresso in a silky core finishing with tobacco, cola and prune. An out-sized wine with a dense Madeira personality. I could see this with a Cohiba at the end of a summer meal on the deck at sundown.”

2016 Brecon True Acacia Head Albarino

A single vineyard Albarino in disguise, (Read we forgot to put it in on the label). Actually consists of two of the three available clones from the oldest serious planting of Albarino. (Jack Ranch) in the Edna valley.  Those pesky little winemakers at Brecon, ferment exclusively in Oak barrels with Acacia heads. Acacia can enhance floral notes and structure without adding vanilla the toasty notes associated with a Quercus species. Think white peach overtones with an underlying Zesty grapefruit. 100% Albarino, 100% 2016, 95% Jack Ranch, 5% Derby Vyd.

By the way, there are around 800 known species of true acacia. The Acacia used in barrels is not one of them. We just liked the name.

2016 Brecon Viognier/Grenache Blanc

This simple 50/50 blend wholly from Adelaida belies the three vineyard and multiple cooperage complexity in this wine. Derived from two super aromatic sundrenched blocks, plus a later ripening more shaded block. Which gives it a lighter fresher more approachable side. In time expect stone fruit flavors to dominate, such as nectarines and peaches, while clean citrus characters shine through on the finish.

2016 Brecon Zinfandel

One for the ecologically minded foodies, AKA “eco-gluttons”. Now that's an interesting new term for us but really quite fits this enticing offering. Our hedonistic style makes the consummate food wine and strangely satisfies even the most fervent cult Zin head. Everything you would expect: organic/sustainable credentials, dry-grown hilltop vineyards, opulent jammy fruit, toasty oak, underlying black & white pepper. A wine for multiple feasts/occasions and not just for your, undoubtedly lovely, “paleo-vegan” best buds.

2016 Brecon Zinfandel/Tannat

Our inaugural Zin/Tannat in 2014 certainly represented a path less traveled. Or, from a blending perspective, a road rarely taken. Conceived as a “one-off” for the wine club, it has proved remarkably popular and somewhat difficult to replicate. Consider this then a next generation Zin/Tannat or ZN/TN 2.0. It has a certain familiarity to the rich jammy 2014 but with better integration and a whole raft of added features. More spice from the Zin and absolutely fantastic length that lingers oh so long. Very approachable or, keeping the tech analogy, one might say plug in and play, play, play!
