2011 Tercero Mourvedre - USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara County (1/25/2020)
A few extra years in bottle have been very beneficial. The wine is still very youthful, but it has unfolded, and is showing much greater depth, as well as good integration. Prior bottles had needed a lot of air to shed a hard edge. This one had a velvet touch from the start, deep black fruit and the barest hint of a leathery note on the finish. Structure and fruit are in harmony, so this might have a long evolution, especially without the wild card of a cork. (screw cap closure)
