Westerly Cote Blonde 2012

  • ws92


Available for:
Deep garnet in color, the 2012 Côte Blonde shows off an exuberant nose of white flowers and dried apricots. The palate has notes of dried fruit, earth, leather, soy and black tea with nuances of menthol and cinnamon stick. Full bodied and with a generous mouthfeel, it is nicely balanced with a medium level of fine grained tannins and refreshing acid, finishing long and spicy. Drinking very well now, it should continue to cellar to 2020.

Shows ample power and finesse. Racy aromas of currant, licorice and smoke open to concentrated flavors of boysenberry, cedar and pencil lead, finishing with ripe but firm tannins. Syrah and Viognier. Best from 2017 through 2022. 589 cases made.
