(84% mourvedre, 6% petite sirah, 5% carignane, 3% alicante bouschet and 2% syrah) Vivid red. Vibrant red and dark berry aromas are complicated by smoky minerals and spices. Fat, velvety and gently sweet, with pure raspberry and blackberry flavors and a tangy jolt of cracked pepper. This is impressively elegant for a blend like this, which I'd have guessed to have a lot more carignane, or even some zinfandel. Carlisle said that this is his favorite Two Acres ever, and that he could drink this all day long. (ST)
I have always loved Mike Officer's Two Acres proprietary red, and the 2007 (a blend of 84% Mourvedre and the rest Petite Sirah, Carignan, Alicante Bouchet, and Syrah) is a surprisingly feminine, elegant effort. It would be fascinating to put this wine in a line-up of grand cru red Burgundies given its almost Pinot Noir-like characteristics of forest floor, mushrooms, smoky, and subtle meaty barbecue notes. Blue and red fruits dominate this remarkably suave red that must be tasted to be believed. Even the most talented taster would probably not guess that there is 84% Mourvedre in the blend. (RP)
