Cline 'Ancient Vines' Mourvedre 2016

Member Review by rckr1951:

This is listed under the "Big and Bold" heading at Wine.com - They are right. This rating may be a point high, however - this was the biggest surprise out of a bottle of Cline I've ever experienced. Large blackberry, pepper - not over bearing, but large - chocolate, earth tones, fine grained and good acidity - Buy this and drink it - Paul 90 points

At five years much of the fruit has been tamed and balancing acid and tannin have stepped forward. A bit of earthiness has shown threw also. Nice wine.

Fruit forward with light acidity and soft tannins. Not particularly balanced but very smooth.

Pours a dark violet color with some dark red hues on the edges. Aromas of plums, dark berries, charred wood and currants. Starts off with the dark cherries and blackberries hitting the palate first. In the middle, there is more currant flavors than dark berries and the smoke starts to come through. Finishes with some more smoke, dark berries, currants and a hint of vanilla. Lot lasting taste left on the palate. Lots going on with this wine, probably would do best with some aging. Definitely not a wine to drink on its own, needs food.

Wine Tasting NotesOur Ancient Vines Mourvdre, grown in the warm, sandy soils of Oakley California, produces a wine that has a distinct chocolate character. The tannins are soft and the wine has good weight in the mouth. Flavors and aromas of cherry and mint help make this delicious wine an unusual delight.
