Chapel Hill Mourvedre 2010
This wine starts out with a huge dose of exotic Asian spices before a little smokiness comes through. They are then joined by red-fruits that have been rolled in dirt. These flavours work their magic as they dance around on my tongue but it is the armada of tannins that really takes up the enjoyment level. The tannins permeate and coat my mouth yet they aren't over bearing in any way. It is the sort of wine that is a conundrum in that the flavours are bold in your mouth but they hold some sort of elegance as they slip down my throat. In fact the whole package is rather inviting and enjoyable.
