Just as fascinated by this as I was a year ago when I first tasted it. Wild, pungent, cloudy, sour, raw, and definitely dirty and rowdy.

Fruity and funky and zesty like if Little Richard were a red wine.

Slightly funky, tomato stem, dusty and mineral, menthol, ripe red berries, a bit woody, leathery with cigar, ashes on the nose, fig, dried strawberries, raspberry, pomegranate, raisin, slightly savory, nutmeg, all spice, preserved plum. Med body, med tannin. It's a Mourvèdre has a lot to offer.

This might be one of my favorite wines ever. Last bottle and it's probably the right time. But there is so much on the nose, strawberry, spicy and front of the palate that makes me think and smile. Baby back ribs, rice & beans. Wish I had 1 more for 2024, but it wouldn't be as good. I love be this wine.

Second time trying this bottling and the extra year definitely helped. Perfect serving temperature by using the Kelvin K2 Wine Thermometer, really made a big difference. Light to medium garnet red. Beautiful nose with notes of lilacs, spices, red berries and twigs. Medium tannins (5/10) and solid acidity. Light plus to medium bodied. Crushed floral notes on the palate with a touch of earthiness, dried cherries, raspberries, herbal notes, strawberries and rhubarb. Long finish. Drink till 2022.
