California Mourvedre 2016

Shay A

November’s 4th Friday was a big hit. There is no way I’ll be able to upload all the wines, nor give them the reviews they deserve, but there were a few worthy of mentioning!

The best Mourvèdre I’ve ever had. Spell binding stuff. Seductive like aromatics of sweet and gummy blue and black fruits wrapped in clove and sandalwood. Lighter on the palate than Andremily’s Syrah. Crunchy blueberries, puréed blackberries, sweet smoke, baking spices and graphite. Can only imagine how good this will be in a few years. Thanks

@Shay A: great to hear the nice reviews on this wine. I figured I may need to hold mine for several years before drinking. Great pull@Keith Fisher

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! — 8 days ago

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

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. — 22 days ago
