Unfamiliar Mourvedre 2017

This particular wine has a story and would be worth reading on previous posts.
A very interesting wine that will tantalize your tastebuds!! Red ruby in color....medium bodied...nice balance between fruit and acidity..taking advice from others I am drinking this chilled! On the nose I am getting barnyard..Jammy red fruits..Iron..Smoke..and violets. Tastes of smoke..plums..cola.. black tea and red fruit!
Wow! all I can say to this elixir!

Dawn hardy says familiar blanc is meant to be drunk young but will do just fine if you let it sit. I think it has a good dose of chenin so shouldn’t go bad any time soon. Enjoy!

Vox Populi Columbia Valley Mourvèdre 2013

A luscious combination of beautiful dark fruit combined wirh a bit of funk and tobacco. A smooth mineral mouthfeel with a bit if spice on the finish. Very nice. Wish I’d bought more of this 100% Mouvedre. — 17 days ago

Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard Mourvedre

Are you Fing kidding me???? This is just bonkers in so many ways. Would have pegged this as burgundy from the nose on this. Slight meaty reduction that gives way to gorgeous red fruit and stony minerality. I cannot get enough of this. Literally. This does not exist anymore. @Hardy Wallace you’re pretty decent at this whole wine thing. You should make more. 💯 — 5 days ago

16.5/20 (90/100) Вино с ароматами вишневого варенья, спелого красного яблока, мускатного ореха, лаврового листа, свежих огурцов и шоколада. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, но приятными по текстуре танинами. Очень хорошо. — 6 days ago

On the nose; lightly perfume pink roses, spring wild flowers, lean fruits with a slight gummy bear character, strawberries, watermelon near the rhine, cherries, candied red apple, orange citruses, beautiful chalkiness, strong volcanic minerals and sea spray.

The body is full, round, thick and a touch gluey. Lean fruits with a slight gummy bear character, strawberries, watermelon near the rhine, cherries, candied red apple, orange citruses, beautiful chalkiness, volcanic minerals and sea spray with lightly perfume pink roses, spring wild flowers. The acidity is round and full. The finish is well polished...thick, gluey and waxy. It’s elegant and very easy to drink. The only thing that I struggle with this wine is the minerality is a bit heavy for my tastes. It’s gritty minerals dig deep into the palate on the long finish. But, I still appreciate it as it’s a good contrast to other Bandol Rosés. Like, Tempier and Chateau Pibarnon Bandol etc..

Castanho Vineyard Mourvèdre 2016

Dark purple with lilac accents. Big, expressive nose of cranberry, blackberry jam, roses, green vegetation, and oaky vanilla. This isn’t the French or Spanish version of Mourvèdre that I’m used to. It’s a bit cleaner and fresher to me and not nearly as extracted as other California bottles. Medium bodied with high acidity and even a good bit of that pleasant funk happening here. On the palate there’s stewed plums, more blackberries, cinnamon roll, and bright cherries. The funk makes a reappearance on the finish. Quality stuff here. — 6 days ago
