Has held up very well for an aged Mataro. Was expecting something lighter, but it's actually quite full bodied, viscous, yet smooth on the palate. Great balance, still some dark fruit there on the nose like plums, prunes and quince - and some charred oak character. Went over well.
Beautiful, silky soft, earthy California Mourvedre that retains good balance and fruit while showing it's age. This reminds me of a combination of some of the more traditional Monastrell from Jumilla that come into the US through Jose Pastor and an aged version of the Beaucastel cotes du rhone. This is my last bottle of this and I hadn't tried it for a year and a half or two and I wish I had more.
