Crimson in the glass. Roasty, earthy nose of dried red fruits and skins of red and black plum, blackberry. Some aromas of incense and tar with charred wood and earth. Fruit aromas are diminishing with only dried fruits remaining. Lots of violet aromas. Nicely balanced entry on the palate with great tannin and acid structure. Fruit remains brighter and more youthful on the palate than the nose would indicate. Flavors of blueberry, boysenberry, cassis, pomegranate and a hint of cranberry. Rich texture and layers of fruit amidst roasted earth notes and nice, sweet oak influence. Drinking very nicely. 92 pts. 3/22/13

Decanted 2 hours. Smoky nose interlaced with floral highlights. Bright fruit on the palate, fresh, clean, long and smooth. I love the element that the mourvedre adds, earthy, robust. It highlights the brightness of the grenache and enhances the subtle notes of the syrah. Update: Its now 5 hours open and this is singing like Stevie Nicks, sultry, deep, spicy, sexy...gained weight, aromatics (now getting dark roast coffee and chocolate notes) and is pure velvet in the mouth...

Wine Tasting NotesDeep blood red. Dark fruits, minerals, licorice, meat and earth. Dried figs, plums with notes of kirsch, smoked meats and black cherries. Hints of wet stones and silky tannins give this wine a rich and complex mouth feel. Should cellar nicely for 7-10 years.

60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre Denner Vineyard Grenache and Mourvedre, James Berry Vineyard SyrahWillow Creek Cuvee is always a blend from our blocks at Denner and James Berry vineyards. The wine was minimally processed with the intent of letting the fruit show it's fullest potential. This vintage was aged in a selection of 50% new oak and 50% second and third fill barrels. The new oak was 2/3 French from Tarrensaud, Francois Freres, and Bel Air. The remaining 1/3 new was Hungarian from Mendocino Cooperage. The wine is garnet to plum in color with expansive aromatics of raspberry, black cherry, and spice box. On the palate the wine shows a nice integration of lively acidity and tannin along with Kirsch liquor, plum, licorice, minerals, and spice. Currently the wine shows best decanted and should cellar well for the next 5-7 years.
