(made from vines that were reportedly planted in the 1880s; 100% whole clusters and raised in 80% concrete eggs and 20% neutral French casks): Bright ruby. Exotic, mineral-accented aromas of redcurrant and cherry, with dried rose and Asian spices adding complexity. Firm and precise on the palate, offering lively tastes of red berry, bitter cherry and floral pastille plus a hint of cracked pepper. Gains sweetness and flesh with air, finishing with excellent clarity and mineral-driven persistence. This wine's blend of flavor intensity and vivacity is impressive.
The 2011 Mourvedre Old-Vine Bedrock Vineyard is a bit on the eccentric side. Savory herbs, tobacco, worn-in leather and tobacco are some of the nuances that waft from the glass as this delicate, mid-weight wine shows off its unique personality. The 2011, the product of a late harvest, was fermented with whole clusters and subsequently aged mostly in concrete. For my taste, the aromas and flavors are a touch on the vegetal side, but some readers may appreciate this style more than I do. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.
Racy and grapey, with wildflower and wild berry aromatics. An easy-drinking style. (Web Only-2012)
