Everything I love about mourvèdre in spades. Depth, spice, freshness, earth. All perfectly integrated.

Dark and powerful. Cherries, spice, and leather. Great find at the Cherry Circle Room at the Chicago Athletic Club.

Big fella. Leathery, black cherry and some chocolate. A shame that I am not enjoying this with a big steak.

Just perfect. Leather and perfect tannins, followed by a pepper finish. One of the best wines I have ever had.

Wow. Really gripping Rhône type red from Faugeres. Real terroir. Pepper and cherry, perfect nose for this type of wine. Earthy and complex. One of my best wine buys.
