One of the curiosities that Mike Officer produces, and a wonderful one at that, is his 2006 Two Acres, a remarkable wine that, in this vintage, is a blend of 75% Mourvedre, 10% Petite Sirah, 8% Carignan, the rest Syrah and Alicante Bouschet. From a vineyard planted in 1910 with yields of 1.7 tons of fruit per acre, this is high-octane Mourvedre with amazing notes of smoked game, beef blood, ground pepper, blueberry, and that classic Mourvedre smell of damp tree bark. A full-bodied, powerful, and distinctive wine that is filled with soul and personality, it is amazing. I am sure it will age well for at least a decade, but who could resist it for that long? (RP)
Bright ruby. Intensely floral, spicy bouquet of cherry, candied plum, violet and lavender. Fresh and sharply focused, offering zesty dark berry skin and cherry pit flavors and picking up dusty tannins on the close. There's nothing showy about this wine, which finishes with youthful grip and refreshing bitterness. (ST)
