Dark purple with lilac accents. Big, expressive nose of cranberry, blackberry jam, roses, green vegetation, and oaky vanilla. This isn’t the French or Spanish version of Mourvèdre that I’m used to. It’s a bit cleaner and fresher to me and not nearly as extracted as other California bottles. Medium bodied with high acidity and even a good bit of that pleasant funk happening here. On the palate there’s stewed plums, more blackberries, cinnamon roll, and bright cherries. The funk makes a reappearance on the finish. Quality stuff here.
