2015 Dirty & Rowdy Shake Ridge Ranch MourvedreJenny & Francois
The darkest flavors from the various Mourvedre projects. To quote Hardy Wallace, "flavors that creep up on you while lost in the forest at sundown, rustling in the brambles with Blackberry- (fruit, leaf, and stem) cinnamon, and cedar. Our Shake Ridge Ranch pounces juicy, wound, with ample acidity and the pecks of short beaked tannins that would tear you apart if they weren’t on some sort of freaky three-eyed baby devil-bird. The wine finishes with a clear path-out of the woods and towards home, led by fruit and granite driven relief."
