Ruby with rich complex dark fruit aromas and enticing spices. On the palate berry and cherry flavors, oak and leather with pepper and floral spice. Well integrated soft tannins, long finish ending with mineral tones. Very nice!

There is a lot going on here. Every component is still looking for a way to blend in. Quite tannic. Long finish. Clearly a bright future. I loved it already now and gave it the benefit of the doubt and pushed it into my 9.0 scoring.

Never fails, when you see it just buy it! Drink it a few years from vintage or take it the distance 20+ years!

Dense dark purple color. First time having 2012 vintage. Sour bing cherry, preserved plum, rose petal, wild berry jam, sweet cinnamon and a hint of smoky flavor. After 90 mins, nose transits to cooked bing cherry, mocha and dark chocolate. Sweet and lovely. Concentrated juice, 🍒 + 🍫 + ☕️ on the palate, high acidity, round and polished tannin. Always a pleasure drinking Rancia. 14.5% alc. 2012 vintage
