Flying Leap Vineyards Arizona Mourvedre, 2016

My expectations were not particularly high when I ordered a glass of this Arizona Mourvedre. But I was very pleasantly surprised.

Medium garnet. Smells and tastes like a very good Cotes du Rhone Villages. Dried strawberries, herbs, pepper. Has the intensity of a Chateauneuf du Pape. If I were tasting this blind, I would swear it was Grenache rather than Mourvedre. An after taste that sticks with me for a good part of the evening. Very good wine.
