Mourvedre Blend

Reserve Bandol Rosé 2018

Bandol: pink or white.

It’s a slight culture shock as a moron gringo in the South of France when wines by the glass are identified not by producer or even by grape but simply by place. Bandol didn’t mean much to me as a place, I drove through it en route to Toulon from Marseille on le D559 but that was about it. Probably it was the fact that it was a vague homonym for bandit drew me to it — which is admittedly kind of lame, but the wine seemed to deliver. Any more than the progeny of any other Mediterranean town would have? Je ne sais pas. But this, this wine right here, is a phenomenal rosé.

50% Mourvèdre, 40% Cinsault, 10% Grenache from Bandol.

Cuvée La Tourtine Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2016

Starts out with zingy sunshine over flower bed earth. After a few hours this comes together beautifully. Lavender, hazelnuts, potting soil, smell of a spring garden... and all sorts of other good stuff you would expect if Provence were jammed in a bottle! — 4 days ago

The Banshee Grenache Blend 2011

The bouquet on this is outstanding. Blue/black fruits, a hint of smoked meat, lavender, mint and spice. Slight flick of heat. Black cherry, brine, licorice, cedar on the palate. Linear acidity and smooth tannin. Good finish too. F’n solid! Perfect for V-Day steaks. — 12 days ago

Cap Est Beqaa Valley Red Blend 2013

The second one is a Grenache- Mourvedre blend. Showing red fruits with wood, spices, peppercorn, coffee, earth, licorice, mint and black tea.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Medium plus in finish with nice tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 7 year old is fruity, yet showing lots of earth notes. A blend of new and old world wine.

Bigger than the GSM, with a nicer mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.

A blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Mourvedre. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Both these wines were very unique and kept on changing every 15 minutes in the decanter. I love this kind of wines.

Terrasses de Baalbeck Bekaa Valley Cinsault Blend 2013

A couple of months ago I ordered a bottle of Lebanese wine at a local wine bar. After reviewing it, the owner of the winery got in contact with me. He decided to fly down to Orlando to meet with me, and brought a couple of nice bottles for us to drink.

The first one is a GSM blend that shows black and red fruits, wood, earth, vegetables, tobacco leaf, spices, wet leaves, black tea, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Dry on the palate with medium acidity.

Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

Needs 45 minutes to open up properly, and show the tannins.

A blend of 55% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 15% Syrah. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
