Minassian Young Mourvedre 2009


Mostly blackberry fruit with hints dark cherry and purple plum supported by notes of cedar, nutmeg and chalky soil. Medium to full bodied, focused and balanced, slightly rustic, delivering a perk of fresh-fruit acidity on the finish. A little quirky, but that’s the joy of it. A good wine that stands out from the crowd. (Reviewed 4/6/12)
