Mending Wall Mortar & Stone Napa Valley Red Blend 2014

$49.99

New from Thomas Brown                   Brand new release from winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown and the owners of Outpost Winery's small-production label. This wine displays an opaque deep purple hue with a dark garnet edge in the glass. Swirling aromas of pine sap, cinnamon stick, pencil lead, and warm blueberry compote emanate from the glass in deep layers. The palate experience, while deep and intricate is also decidedly bright and energetic for a wine that comes from such challenging growing conditions. Bringing together mountain and valley floor fruit, round lushness and angular architectural definition, this wine displays how different parts of the Napa Valley can contribute complimentary components that form a complete wine of intrigue, power, and depth. 91 Points Robert Parker: "The 2014 Mortar & Stone Proprietary Red is a blend of 46% Syrah, 40% Zinfandel and 14% Petite Sirah. The wine offers up notes of pepper, steak tartare, blackberry, cassis, white flowers and licorice. It is rich, medium to full-bodied, supple and juicy"

Really cool blend. Even better than when we tried at the winery in June. Has smoothed out quite a bit. This is good stuff

A lovely rusticity, spiciness and pepper. Solid flavor profile.
