2012 Lacuna offers a hint of dense fruit yet still retains the layers of savory flavors that define our wine each year.
We continue to quietly source from some of the most accomplished growers of Syrah in California. These cool sites where Syrah is neighbored by Pinot Noir, give the varietal a rare depth and complexity. Each vintage we blend small amounts of complimentary varietals from Old Vines to complete the wine. In 2013 beautiful blue fruit elements overlay some of the savory aspects of Syrah that always define Lacuna. We were excited to see the density of fruit is still accompanied by elegant floral tones of lavender and spice. But really…the fun starts when the 2013 is exposed to some oxygen! Layers quickly unfold and black pepper and smoke begin to emerge. These savory characters are so important to us and really shape the philosophy of our wine. Fine, lignified tannins offer a framework which keep this vintage’s generous nature focused and texturally balanced.

Every harvest presents us with a unique set of flavors. The character of Lacuna pivots slightly to highlight the attributes of the vintage without straying from our philosophy. We are genuinely excited about the results this year and hope you enjoy them too.
