Tablas Creek Mourvédre 2014
Wine EnthusiastDark berries, black plums and dried blueberries meet with crushed pepper and a touch of vanilla on the nose of this bottling. The palate is packed with blackberries galore, lifted by white pepper, beef char and other savory seasonings.
Wine AdvocateA wine that shines in 2014 is the 2014 Mourvedre. Bottled at the end of April and made in a more pretty, elegant, bright style, it offers lots of berry and passion fruit, earth and sappy herb aromas and flavors, medium to full-bodied richness and nicely integrated acidity and tannin. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.
Wine SpectatorTaut and appropriately gamy, with modest notes of dried cherry, leather and smoky anise. Drink now through 2021. 295 cases made.
