Chapel Hill Mourvèdre 2009

This was the first varietal Mourvédre released by Chapel Hill.  Whereas the 2010 (click link for that note) was bright, radiant and had an amazing perfume, this 2009 to me is more typical: darker, concentrated, a deep seated aromatic profile - go looking and you'll be rewarded with concentrated blackberry and black cherry.

Smooth, thick, rich layers of flavour greet you on the palate - there's beautiful flow, a consistent theme from 2010 - and hints of sweet spice, Moroccan spice, and liquorice.  Length is exquisite.  94 - Outstanding
