Wine EnthusiastFull of dark plum and earth, a tremendous old-school California Mourvedre from old Oakley vines that exude mushroomy soft tannins and a rounded spiciness, finished by a trace of chocolate.

Wine SpectatorWell-focused mint and wild berry fruit is supple and generous, with a spicy, road-tar edge. Well-balanced, intense yet graceful. Drink now through 2018. 14,788 cases made.
