A wine that readers need to hide in the cellar for 2-3 years is the 2013 Damas Noir, which is a smokin' wine made from 100% Mourvedre, fermented with, of course, 100% whole clusters. Brought up in neutral oak, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated 2013 has tons of spice, bloody meats, stem and mulled dark fruit-like aromas and flavors, as well as a structured, tannic finish. It's loaded with potential. Winemaker Chris Cherry continues to produce a bevy of unique wines from his estate high up off of Peachy Canyon Road. The wines have shifted in style over the past decade, and today they're much more savory and stem-dominated (most are fermented with 100% whole cluster and aged in a good portion of concrete) than in the past. I suspect the majority of these new releases will benefit from short term cellaring to let the stems integrate. (JD)
Brilliant ruby. Vibrant boysenberry and cherry aromas, complicated by suggestions of peppery spices and candied flowers. Chewy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are enlivened by a hint of cracked pepper and given spine by juicy acidity. The incisive, gripping finish is framed by dusty tannins and leaves a subtle lavender pastille quality behind. (JR)
