Mourvedre

Dirty & Rowdy

"Especial" Alder Springs Mourvèdre 2018

One of the best Dirty and Rowdy wines that I’ve ever had. Antle vineyard fruit on steroids. Super young and spicy but extremely approachable. — 18 hours ago

Wallula Vineyard Mourvedre 2015

Second tasting. Dense purple red, moderately extracted pigment. Weedy black currant notes in nose. In mouth black currant, butterscotch, mint and later cherry flavors emerges. Seed tannins in finish need time to aerate. Cherry cough syrup aftertaste. 148 cases made. Nice wine, well made, great varietal and local character. — 24 days ago

Vogelzang Vineyard Mourvedre Rosé 2017

Rosé really, really does not have to be crap. It can be refined and something special. Delicate light pink in the glass with an atypically complex nose of watermelon, orange blossom, white flowers, and bright citrus. Wonderful acidity and super crisp, this is exceedingly dry and fun. There’s a subtle smokiness that permeates throughout and gives depth to the wine. The mid palate is all bright, ripe fruit which leads way to notes of peaches, guava fruit, tart cranberry, and stone minerality. A bottle of this doesn’t last very long. I don’t know if I’m prepared to say it’s my favorite Rosé but it’s certainly up there. — 17 days ago

Arcane XV Le Diable Mourvedre 2015

While it’s still a baby, this rich Mourvèdre has red berries on the pallet. Bright acidity wanes as it open longer, will well integrated tannins this should have a bright future. — 17 days ago

1st year they bottled the Mourvèdre alone. Dunnck calls this a California grand cru and I can see why. One of the highest vineyards in California (above 2500 feet) . Balanced with excellent acidity. So much tension and precision to balance the super pure fruit — 13 days ago

Andremily

California Mourvedre 2016

Okay, I know I drank this too young (it was just released 5 months ago), but my curiosity got the best of me and since I was afforded the opportunity to share it with knowledgeable friends, I gave in to temptation. Having never had a domestic Mourvèdre (this also has 9% Syrah and 2% Viognier), I wasn’t sure what to expect. WA rated this 99. At this moment that may be a little generous on initial pour. I saved some in a glass and drank it 24 hours after opening and it was improved notably. I think LPB was closer than I would have guessed on that first pour. Decant judiciously if you can’t wait to open this. Wonderful dark fruit to match the dark color. A touch more elegant than the Andremily Syrah, but not inferior. I’m going to wait a few years to open another, but I’ll never have any questions about whether to purchase this wine (or any other of Jim Binn’s wines). — 8 days ago
