Beautiful complexity aromatically and texturally. Red fruited, floral and an earthen silkiness. Nice acidity, welcome chewy structure but lighter extraction, lively to drink. I’d say this Mourvèdre is in prime drinking window, but has years of life ahead. Appreciate an old world “completeness” here and glad to have had patience. Bravo Hardy 👏

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. 💯
