Over the past week or two I have been thinking of pulling a special bottle for wine #2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣. Instead, I ended up with something Familiar. Random pull, but representative of the wines I drink and enjoy most often. Nice value. Cheers!

Shy nose reluctantly gives up scents of deep, rich berry fruit, classic Mourvèdre tree bark, and dry gravel. Much more demonstrative in the mouth. Mouthfilling and dank, it still has plenty of tannin to shed, but is fine now. Not super complex but a very good value in the low 20s. — 23 days ago

Nice to try this variety on its own as it is usually blended with Grenache and Syrah in a GSM mix. Bold and well structured, at first somewhat restrained but after an hour or so it open up to a luscious, juicy very drinkable Wine. I’m a fan. — 13 days ago
The other day someone asked me what my favorite grape was and for some reason I blurted out “Mourvedre!”. My answer to that question will always differ depending on what is in the glass in front of me, but Mourved is a big part of what I love in Rhone and Bandol (and their North American counterparts). This is a tasty, but young wine. Fresh and lively, Mourvedre always strikes me with how light and pretty a wine it is. This has plenty of years ahead, but it’s tasty and pairing well with almost any food right now. — a day ago
