The 2012 Petra, the estate's flagship is terrific. Remarkable detailed for such a big, explosive wine, the 2012 boasts serious depth and intensity throughout. Dark red cherry, plum, graphite, smoke and tobacco are some of the signatures. The 2012 is layered and deeply expressive throughout. Sweet herbs, sage, tobacco and earthy notes add nuance on the ferrous, savory finish. It would be great to see all the Petra wines at this level.
