Hewitson Old Garden Mourvedre 2006
Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Mourvedre Old Garden, sourced from a vineyard planted in 1853, is a saturated purple color with aromas of wood smoke, underbrush, leather, blueberry compote, and blackberry. Full-bodied, structured, and powerful, this dense, layered effort is well-balanced, spicy, and lengthy. It demands 6-8 years of cellaring and will have a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2035.
Wine SpectatorRipe and generous, this is a sturdy red with a bit of a grip to the tannins, playing out its blackberry and tar flavors with precision. Drink now through 2013.
