Description

This is the 2012, no reviews are out yet, but the 2012 vintage was much better in CA than 2011.

 

The 2011 review is provided for reference:

Wine Advocate 96+

Starting out the tasting and absolutely rocking, the 2011 The Ripper checks in as a blend of 100% Grenache that was brought up in equal parts concrete and neutral barrel. Offering up layers of kirsch, dried underbrush, white pepper and hints of spring flowers, it flows onto the palate with a medium to full-bodied, vibrant profile that gains richness and depth with air. Leaning towards the more focused, elegant side of the spectrum, this beauty doesn’t lack for texture or length. Give it a year or three and enjoy through 2023. It’s superb and well worth the effort to track down.

Drink 2015-2023. – Jeb Dunnuck

Known for producing decadently rich and textured wines, proprietor Eric Jenson continues to show his winemaking skill and talent with these distinctly fresh, focused 2011s (his 2010s were also in the same ball park stylistically). All of the wines reviewed here are brilliant and this estate has quickly become one of the reference points for Paso Robles. Don’t miss these wines! While most of Eric’s wines are ready to go on release, these 2011s will all benefit from short-term cellaring.
