Vinous 90 WE 90 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - "La Sirena's 2012 Pirate Treasured captures the essence of the house style in its inviting personality. The flavors are bold, racy and generous in this ripe, Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah-based blend from Heidi Barrett."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "A playful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah, this hearty bottling delivers something for everyone, from the austere, classic nature of the Bordeaux varieties to the fruitiness and savory leather tones of the Rhônes. It’s made to be bold, black and enjoyable now; pack a bottle or two for your next adventures, eye patch optional."
Winemakers Notes - "A rambunctious blend of seven varieties with full ripeness and big flavors from the stellar 2012 weather. The aromatics show layers of fruit; berry, cherry, plum, black raspberry, and pomegranate with smoky, spicy, meaty tones as well, complimented by sweet caramel, vanilla, toasty French oak. It’s a mouth coating yet silky structural wine with flavors that mirror the aromas. This is a big lush red that’s fun and delicious while also being quite versatile and age worthy to boot. Drink up all ye pirates!" 14.7% ABV.
