Ranked #17 of 18 2010 Mourvèdre from Barossa Valley
Medium to deep red/brick-red colour, looks advanced and over-developed. Bouquet confirms this: animal and funky. And the palate is dried out, slightly bitter and harsh, without fruit. Microbial problems.
Drink: 2012 to 2012
92 Points Robert Parker
With a medium density of garnet color, the 2010 Mourvedre Old Garden is evolving into a meat and earth-laced bake berry and preserved plum character with nuances of new leather and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers plenty of earthy/savory flavor with a firm backbone of chewy tannins and a good, long finish.
