91 points. The first thing that I noticed about this wine was its peculiar orange cast, that made me think more of Sangiovese than of Cabernet Sauvignon. The very first thing I notice on the aroma is a lush blackcurrant note coming from the Cabernet Sauvignon, but after that, almost everything that I detect on the nose indicates Mourvedre. There is a dark chocolate cherry aroma, buttery caramel, coffee beans, and a faint citrus flower note. The flavor is rich with raspberries, sugar cane, dark caramel tones and chocolate, with blackberry, granite, and forest floor notes giving the wine multiple dimensions. There is a lot of layering to this wine’s complexity, but like the nose, the palate strongly shows the Mourvedre more than the Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine has excellent acidity that is like biting into a fresh red berry, coupled with this really nice limestone, mineral finish. There is a lightness about this wine but it also manages to be very intense at the same time. I like this wine quite a bit. It has the intense, rich flavors of Mourvedre and the firm backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon, really capturing the best of both grapes. It’s unique, it’s elegant and refined, and it's a steal at $20.
