($50) Deep ruby. Vivid aromas of raspberry, cherry-cola, fresh rose, incense and minerals. Lively, finely etched red berry flavors are reminiscent of New World, warm-climate pinot, with candied floral and mineral notes adding complexity. Sweet and seamless on the finish, which strongly echoes the raspberry and floral notes. There's no way that I'd have guessed this to be mourvedre. These vines were reportedly planted in 1853.
