1312 is still, altogether dry, a lucky blend of several 2012 fermentations. Its tannic structure comes chiefly from Dabinett, Yarlington Mill, Major, and Somerset Redstreak; its fruitiness from Golden Russet; its acidity from Wickson, Ashmead’s Kernel, and Esopus Spitzenberg. Aroma through finish, we find peach and apricot (fresh & dried), pineapple, various citrus fruits, pear, smoke, and rocks, with pleasingly dynamic acid, tannin, and fruit throughout. We couldn’t make very much of this, so store a few bottles if you especially like it.

Finding this was a real chore. 750mL bottle purchased from New England Wine & Spirits earlier today for...I’m not sure, I’ll have to reexamine the receipt. To snifter, it pours a clear yellow. That’s it: show’s over, folks. Pleasant aromas of pear skins, vanilla beans, Niagara grapes, and tart apples. But tastes, however, of nothing more than unripe green apples and a little yeastiness. It did contain this lovingly delightful growing warmth felt by the second swallow from my toes up to my neck. Could be worse.
