Wines At Our Table; Week of March 15, 2015; 3/9/2015-3/16/2015: Consistent with prior reviews - Pale salmon color with appealing red fruit, wet stone, and citrus peel aromas with a hint of earthiness. On the palate it's dry, and fresh and medium-bodied with mouth filling strawberry, watermelon, hints of red currant, subtle spice, and citrus flavors and a nice touch of minerality. Lingering finish.
Very faint salmon color in glass, gives up very little aroma. Much more flavorful and body than color and aroma would suggest. Tart strawberries and with a hint of mourvedre’s earthiness and acidic minerality throughout.
Yup, still pink crack. Could drink this almost any day it's so good. Good warm at room temp, good cold, good right on pnp and good with air. Actually it's best still with a bit of air, I think. The meaty qualities of the Mourvedre come out a bit more.
This has been a favorite since we had our first bottle last summer. A delightfully balanced wine, with delicate watermelon, citrus peel, and floral notes, but also with a pleasant mouth-filling heft and a tasty finish. Dry, with enough acid and a sense of minerality. Kudos, Larry!
