Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Hermitage was bottled late last year and offers a very classic, slightly backward profile with notes of crushed rocks, black currants, graphite, chocolate and spice. It’s certainly enjoyable today, but this medium to full-bodied effort will be better in 4-5 years and drink well for a decade after that.
