The Bully 2012

The Bully 2012
The Bully 2012

The Bully is a dense wine chock-full of power and grace from the heart of Red Mountain. 800 cased produced.

94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot aged in new French oak.

"Year's Best Cabernets" 93 Points, Wine & Spirits

"Drawn primarily from Obelisco and Kiona Vineyards, this Cabernet flirts with Red Mountain's power, in its smoky, peppery scent and dark-fruited, black plum flavors. But rather than heavy, the wine feels saturated; rather than stalwart, the tannins are supple. Those tannins give the impression of movement, a nimble texture guiding the wine to a graceful finish."

-Wine & Spirits

92 Points, Wine Advocate

"Incorporating 6% Petit Verdot and raised in 100% new French oak, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon The Bully is another full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal effort from Chris that gives up terrific black fruits, melted licorice, tar, roasted herbs and hints of chocolate. Chewy, decadent, full-bodied and layered, it stays remarkably graceful, elegant and drinkable. Coming from some of the oldest vines on Red Mountain, drink it anytime over the coming 7-9 years"

92 Points: Wine Enthusiast

"Wound up like a drum, this wine opens to reveal hedonistic aromas of toast, barrel spice, blackberry and light meaty notes. It’s made in a full-bodied, concentrated style, with wound-up tannins that would benefit from time in the cellar. Best after 2020"
