The 2012 Segla differs quite a bit from its 2010 predecessor in terms of structure, although it will surely turn out to be one of the great successes of this producer. Whereas the 2010 was vibrant and bright, the 2012 is broody and intense. Deeply layered black fruit, slavering acidity, and robust, masculine tannins. Notes of spice, cedar and vanilla come forward towards the seemingly endless finish. This is a sweeping epic of a wine that will age for a decade or longer, peaking perhaps in the next 8-12 years. Decanting is a plain necessity. Pairs best with juicy sirloin steak or venison.
