2013 Dirty and Rowdy Mourvedre FAMILIAR

California more

7/23/2015 - David_T Likes this wine: 90 points

The aromas and flavors match with red+black cherry, cola and baking spice... but before you think this is an overblown pinot, it's a refined mourvedre, light on its feet yet structured with medium acidity and light tannins. True to the grape, not made to taste a certain way It seems a touch young but is already drinking quite well with minimal air. I look forward to watching this evolve while the single vineyards age.

My last bottle, a nice run. Drinking well, not over the hill like my previous note, but don't hold these any longer. Pleasant tea, dark fruit and earth with integrated acidity/tannins.

Aromas of green apple, lemon, peach and minerals. The palate matches and adds secondary notes of yellow apple, lime, nectarine and white flowers to each of the primary notes in the nose. Medium+ acidity adds liveliness and structure. Lovely complexity, drinking well now but this should age 5+ years.

Slightly past prime showing some oxidative notes but still pleasant tropical and stone fruit notes, light minerality and a smooth mouthfeel even with the bubbles.

Drinking well now with a bit of air but still young overall, a nice Bdx blend that shows what malbec can contribute. A pleasant mix of red fruit particularly red cherry along with a bit of cocoa, earth and spice. Light oak influence, balanced and smooth on the palate with medium acidity/tannins/finish. Should age at least through its 10th birthday.

Drinking well now and I don't see it gaining much with age. Aromas of dark fruit, smoked meat and a hint of earth. The palate adds a bit of dust. Integrated medium acidity/tannins. A touch simple but a nice qpr that speaks for itself and doesn't let the fruit steal the show.

Interesting trying this back-to-back with the 09 3 Year Select. The fruit is the same with matching yellow apple, strong minerality and light-medium acidity. The difference is in the barrels. This has a nice butterscotch as the label suggests, but not the vanilla/creamy texture many new oak barrels contribute. No or partial malolactic fermentation? I do like the 3 Year Select slightly better and think it has better aging potential though this is still drinking well.

Intriguing. Yellow apple and kiwi. There's oak but it's mostly neutral, certainly balanced, not the typical creamy/vanilla. It shows an intense minerality which with light-medium acidity adds structure. I've not tasted anything quite like it from Ohio but it's definitely enjoyable. I agree this will continue to improve with additional age.

Lovely aromas of red & black fruit- plum, cherry, blackberry and currant, also violet and some earth. I could smell this for hours. The flavors match. Fruit-forward but medium acidity & tannins with light minerality adds structure. Fairly lengthy finish. I'm writing this note on day 3 and the wine is still evolving in the glass- tasty now but better with more time.

7/2/2015 - David_T Likes this wine: 90 points

Pleasant, complex mix of tropical fruit, citrus (particularly tangerine), stone fruit and florals on both the nose and palate. Light minerality and moderate acidity add structure. Medium-bodied and just off-dry, this is certainly drinking well now but should last at least through its 10th birthday.

Agree this is peaking. Nutty, baked apple, a touch of caramel. Dry with well-integrated/well-balanced oak and light acidity. Perhaps a touch oxidized but not in a negative way. Drink now.

Designated 'inaugural' but no vintage listed. Pleasant pear, melon and spice aromas. The palate is mostly pear and yellow apple with some melon and a hint of herbs. The lack of oak lets the variety shine through though this is simple overall with light acidity. Drink now given its synthetic closure.

Dry with pleasant fruit, at if not just past peak now; drink this summer. Aromas of cherries, watermelon and strawberries. The flavors match with bold fruit but adding some gooseberries and their acidity along with a hint of herbs. Lengthy finish. Light acidity and moderate minerality; this is tasty with complexity not common in many rose'.

Delicious with fresh tropical fruit, grilled peaches and pineapple. It's juicy but adds a bit of lanolin which along with its light acidity makes for a complex mouthfeel. Don't hesitate to drink one now but this should age for a few years as well.
