This rich mourvedre from California concentrates ripe, dark, almost syrupy berry fruit, dusty dark chocolate, and mint and bay leaf mostly at the front half of the mouth. After 1.5 hours of decanting the mint and bay leaf opened up into forest floor and dust became earthy. Nose has aroma of dirt, gamey meat, and chocolate with a hint of mint. Strong on the nose and the attack, weaker in the mid-palate and finish, has sharp acid around the front of the tongue with medium tannins. After 24 hrs in the refrigerator fruit in the mid-palate strengthened; wine paired very well with 85% dark chocolate and also with strongly herbal pasta with diced meat. Finish is mostly short but persists with a hint of almond nut flavor.

Smoke/leather/plum lead with a dry finish. The smoke up front is harsh and nearly overpowers the plum. Bright fruit is necessary to achieve any sort of balance, but overall I would not purchase this again.

Big and intense with minty bay leaf scents joining ripe rich blackberry and wild berry flavors that are framed by gritty minerally tannins and a dash of pepper. Drink now through 2012. 14500 cases made. WS.
