2001 Terre Rouge, Sierra Foothills, Mourvedre ($22 list, but discounted with their Harvest Sampler, $99 for a 6 pack). Alcohol level: 14.5%.
First one we've had since the '99. Harvested at 25.5 percent brix, .65 TA, and 3.8 pH.
Gave blackberries, black cherries, and black plums on the nose and upfront. Much more black fruit, gamy meat, and very ripe tomatoes in the complexity across the palate, and the finish almost wouldn't stop. Wonderful wine; get it.
