Wallula Vineyard Mourvedre 2015

Dense dark purple-red, highly extracted. Weedy minty buttery notes in nose. Blackberry, cherry and eucalyptus flavors initially , slightly hot, cherry cough syrup finish. Bitter aftertaste, moderate astringency. Flavors integrate and tannins soften somewhat after an hour - cherry, blueberry and blackberry flavors with length and a hint of mint-eucalyptus and black currant, with the tactile sensation of black pepper on the finish. Give this one an hour’s decanting before enjoying, a joy of a wine, well balanced and easy drinking, not remotely overripe but on point varietally in its expressive flavor profile. Plum flavors eventually emerge 2-3 hours after opening. — 6 days ago

Especial Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard Mourvèdre 2013

Weekday drinker hall of fame contender. The anti-Mourvèdre Mourvèdre. Among the lightest, crispiest, juiciest that red wine can be. — 19 days ago

Sheldon Hills Vineyard Mourvedre 2017

This fresh wine is inspiring. Taking a non-noble grape, keeping the alcohol below California norms, 13.6%, this boutique producer makes a wine that exceeds the sum of its individual components. Won’t win a blind tasting contest as it’s not “big” enough. I’d recommend this to anyone. Wonderful wine. — 14 days ago

Bandol Mourvedre 2015

Not giving a lot right now. A bit medicinal, but the stuffing is there. Too young, perhaps? — 9 days ago
