A gorgeous effort, the 2008 Two Acres is a blend of 79% Mourvedre and the rest Petite Sirah, Syrah, Carignan and Alicante Bouschet. To achieve fully ripe Mourvedre is no easy task, even in sunny, dry California. This deep purple-hued offering displays notes of blue fruits, black raspberries, camphor and spring flowers. With super fruit, a dense, full-bodied opulence and a stunningly rich finish, it is a super wine to drink over the next decade or more. (RP)
Glass-staining ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed bouquet of ripe raspberry, cherry, violet and cracked pepper, with a hint of star anise coming up with aeration. Sappy, gently sweet red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, with lively acidity providing spine. At once densely packed and vibrant, finishing with strong cut and spicy persistence. (ST)
The little vineyard, on the east side of the valley, is 101 years old, and was planted to a wide array of varieties, in the old Italian-American immigrant fashion. The wine is dry, complex and ageworthy. This ’08 is deep in berry, spice, licorice and anise flavors, with a tang of minerals. It’s fresh, vibrant and utterly distinctive. Will develop over the next decade.
