Sean Boyd nailed this Mourvèdre! Smoke, tar, blackberry compote, and wildflowers with a touch of salty sea air. In fact, I just want to keep my nose in the glass! I expected something big, like a Bandol. This is certainly relatively full-bodied, but the fruit, lean tannins, and a touch of succulent acidity are harmonious. I suspect this will easily cellar another 7-9 years. Paired with duck breast and asparagus and wild mushrooms.

Love this wine. Last one I picked up from trip out to Eastern Washington in 2012. This has opened up so nicely smokey deep berries on the nose. Deep rich finish lingering blackberry, vanilla and a hit of whiskey. Nicely balanced definitely plenty of life left.

2012 Rotie "Dre" Mourvèdre. Blueberry, white pepper, leather, green herb. Delicious infanticide.

#Mourvedre with nice bright fruit and hints of mineral and salinity.

Hard to pin down, and super intriguing, this wine displays lavender, coffee and stewed fruits on the nose. The body is huge but remains balanced with graceful acidity.

smooth & restrained, alcohol isn't obvious even though it is the highest of the bunch

Brand new release. Great stuff. Really dark and fruit dominant, great spice, some tobacco. This wine is going to be good for a long time. 100% Wallula Vineyard, 50% Whole Cluster, Single Varietal Mourvèdre. Great stuff, really. Doesn’t finish hot at all.

Took 1 1/2 hours in a decanter to open up. Dark blue fruit, moderate tannins. Luckily poured off half for tomorrow.
