Everything Salil said (minus the "ripe/California" blah blah - it is 13.6% and it is Mourvedre). An exceptional bottle of Mourvedre, with bright fruits, earthiness, sweet oak, plenty of acidity, and a long finish. Exceptional. Back of the bottle put the drinking window through 2002. They are cray cray. No hurry, and still improving. Wish I had more!
An absolutely stunning bottle of Mataro/Mourvedre; a seamless combination of ripe red and dark fruited flavours, touches of oak spice and mature leathery and savoury earthy flavours all coming together on a fragrant, polished, medium weight frame. It's certainly ripe and showing its Californian roots, but the balance is impeccable and it's drinking superbly now even though the fruit, acidity and balance suggest there's plenty of time ahead here.
