Agreed. And a bit funkier than I’m used to.

Just delicious. Bloomed with air and even better on day 2-3.
Medium yellow/hints of gold. Yellow apple, floral/pollen, melon, not waxy but a bit honeyed w/ age. Impeccably balanced.

Dirty & Rowdy

Shake Ridge Ranch Mourvedre 2016

Typical Dirty and Rowdy fashion. Shake Ridge fruit has always been interesting to me. The nose tends to be much more pronounced than other Dirty and Rowdy Mourvèdre’s. Strawberries, canned cranberries, orange zest. Little grip on the mouth. Cannot wait to see how this wine evolves. Fantastic Thanksgiving wine! — 7 days ago

@Arden Barnett: I think this is always a fun wine. Lighter bodied red that I imagine paired well with your Thanksgiving meal.

I had the 2018! Really cool stuff.

Two Shepherds

El Dorado Mourvedre 2014

I think this is William Allen’s first Mourvèdre from outside the RRV. Pomegranate, red plums, and brine aromas and flavors. Throw in some lavender and dried herbs, too. Acidity balances beside lean tannin and a medium body. — 21 days ago
