Andremily - Mourvedre 2020 (750ml)
Wine Advocate 98 points
"The 2020 Mourvèdre is blended with 12% Syrah and 2% Viognier. Grapes come from Andremily's new Slide Hill estate vineyard, the Alta Mesa Vineyard and Larner Vineyard in Santa Barbara County, plus the G2 vineyard in Paso Robles. It was vinified using 75% whole clusters and matured for around 21 months in 50% new French barriques and 600-liter demi-muids. It takes some time to reveal pure tones of star anise, tar, lilac and chocolate, which complement a deep core of boysenberry and blueberry fruit, and it gains in intensity and expression as it spends time in the glass. The palate offers highly concentrated, youthfully coiled fruit framed by powdery tannins and vibrant acidity, and it has a very long, layered finish. It will benefit from several years in bottle. 500 cases and a few magnums were made."

"Not yet bottled, the 2020 Mourvedre is one heck of an impressive Mourvèdre, offering textbook savory red, blue, and black fruits as well as herbes de Provence, dry-aged beef, pepper, and some spicy, floral nuance. Full-bodied and opulent on the palate, with great tannins, it should have plenty of up-front appeal yet evolve for 15+ years in cold cellars.This was another brilliant lineup from Jim Binns. The 2019s here are easily the finest I’ve ever tasted, and the 2020s don’t appear to be far behind, although they bring a touch more oomph compared to the powerful, yet elegant 2019s."
