Editorial Reviews for Cline Mourvedre Rose Cline Mourvedre Rose
This smells meaty and slightly funky, all leathered up and ready to ride. Burning rubber, oil and grease, exhaust fumes and spicy black fruit; I name thee Evil Rider. Bright on entry, this does show a little sweetness to the blueberry, black plum and cherry flavors. Round and fairly lush in style, it maintains a firm base of acidity that draws the wine across a rather long finish. Decidedly plummy in nature and looking good for BBQ duty. 89pts
I like the aroma on this - interesting creamy oak notes, strawberries, kiwi. Nice umami. The body is fruit acidity centric, though fairly low impact. Nice stone fruit in the finish.
crisp grapefruit strawberry
This has to be my favorite Rose ever. I'm no afficianado, but love the flavor and the dryness. Most rose's are way too sweet for me. Cheers Cline!
