This wine represents Adelaida’s first ever Reserve designation for a Rhone Style blend.   A best barrel selection of only three varieties, it shows what can be accomplished in a difficult year with low vineyard yields and a non-interventionist winemaking approach.  The wine emphasizes the personality of  Mourvedre, with its characteristic mildly gamey bouquet and fleshy dark fruit.  Quite open for a young wine, its initial invitation is a complex of aromatics, from raw meat to Provence herbs to blackberries, transitioning to velvety textured flavors of boysenberry preserves accented by tame hints of sagebrush. Its warm viscosity leads to a juicy persistent finish.
