Mourvedre and Grenache

I had a few minutes at the winery today and decided to taste the two varietals that are new to us this year. Of course, new is relative. We made both of these in France in 2002.

The Mourvedre is unreal. It tastes great now - really great. It still has the wild strawberry flavor which it has had from the beginning. Every time I taste it, I think of summer in the mountains picking tiny wild strawberries.

The Grenache also tastes wonderful but it is changing. It has already picked up a bit of weight and the tannins have calmed down a wee bit.

If you happen to be in Rochester, New York this coming Friday I will be pouring several of our 2004s at Wine Sense from 5 to 7 PM. Wine Sense is at 749 Park Avenue in Rochester - http://www.wedefinewine.com/
