2016 Dirty & Rowdy MourvedreJenny & Francois
One of the first producers of Mourvedre (a blending grape in Chateaneuf du Pape and majority varietal in Bandol) in California. One of the first natural wines I got into from the new world. Ridiculously alive, like Frankenstein just got up and walked. Loads of weird primoridial fruit and earth scents, with scorched earth, dried cherries, tobacco and kirsch. Tangy, vibrant end edgy. Silkiness of a Pinot Noir with mouthcoating fruit tanginess.
