The nose is filled with cherry currant, anise, spice box, cinnamon stick and blackberries. The mouth feel is luscious with long, smooth tannins that are extremely soft, especially after an hour of open time in the bottle. The finish is long and silky.
92 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (5/2012): “Proulx is a welcome new name to the CGCW table, and, of its several fine wines, this one stands out as our favorite. From its intense aromatic beginnings to its rich and long-lasting flavors, it is charged with lots of well-defined, ripe-berry fruit and shows an appealing inclination to plushness. It is slightly supple in feel and sports a spine of wellmanaged tannins that affords a nice bit of structural grip, and, while certain to keep well and evolve for several years, it is a delicious, polished, fairly classic Zinfandel that is tasty right now.”
