Thurston Wolfe 2012 D.R. Wolfe’s Family Red, Horse Heaven Hills, $16

By on May 14, 2015

Thurston Wolfe-2012-Dr. Wolfe's Family RedWade Wolfe continues to produce one of the Yakima Valley’s most consistent and approachable proprietary red blends, and a stunning vintage led him to a fun blend of Petite Sirah (40%) from Zephyr Ridge Vineyard along with Zinfandel (33%), Lemberger (20%) and Syrah. It carries a theme of Chukar Cherries from beginning to finish with aromas and flavors of cherries and milk chocolate, along with notes of dark plum and coffee. Smooth tannins and easy acidity give it a pleasingly medium weight to the structure.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 992 cases
