Onx Reckoning 2012


SKU 18357


A dark and brooding Djinn trapped inside its bottle, Reckoning is sheer power. The generous nose evokes images of dark Damson plums, olallieberry, graphite, and lavender. On the palate, Reckoning reveals its brooding, savory nature with hints of braised meats and freshly caramelized crème brulee. Assuredly weighty and viscous, possessing a fine grained, refined structure while facilitating a lengthy and indulgent finish, 2012 Reckoning toes the fine line between delicate and brutish power.

Wine EnthusiastThis mashup of 62% Syrah, 16% Petite Sirah, 8% Tempranillo, 7% Grenache, 5% Zinfandel and 2% Malbec delivers aromas of black cherry and Chinese five spice as well as mint and black earth. The palate picks up blackberry-laced iced tea with sprigs of mint and pinches of cardamom, alongside spicy gingerbread cake.

Wine AdvocateThe inky-colored 2012 Reckoning is the star of the lineup. Made from a kitchen sink-like blend of 62% Syrah, 16% Petite Sirah, 8% Tempranillo, 7% Grenache and the balance Zinfandel and Malbec, this beauty dishes up loads of blueberry, blackberry, spring flowers, licorice and serious minerality to go with a medium to full-bodied, fresh and elegant feel on the palate. The vintage's purity of fruit is front and center here, and this has a great mix of richness and freshness. It will drink well for 7-8 years.

Wine SpectatorBold and stylish, but still tightly focused, with distinctive aromas of rose petal, smoked meat and dried berry and dense flavors of cracked pepper, plum and licorice. The tannins are big but ripe. Syrah, Petite Sirah, Tempranillo, Grenache, Zinfandel and Malbec. Drink now through 2023. 539 cases made.
