Tasting Notes

96 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)

“A cuvée made for winemaker Brennen Leighton’s wife and a field blend of 70% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, and 5% Syrah, the 2017 Gratitude ranks with the finest Mourvèdres to come from the state. Awesome notes of black raspberry liqueur, incense, ground pepper, and forest floor give way to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, powerful yet weightless 2017 that does everything right. It’s already just about impossible to resist, yet my money is on it evolving for a solid decade.”

94 Points, James Suckling

“This field blend of 70% mourvedre, 25% grenache and 5% syrah has a smooth, silky texture that is captivating and beautiful with crushed berries, such as raspberries. Stone and tea-leaf undertones. It’s full-bodied, yet polished and creamy-textured. Spicy aftertaste with cloves and black pepper. Drink now or hold.”
