Old Faithful 'The Almond Grove' Mourvédre 2006

Showing some good secondary development, yet still retaining elements freshness. Aromatics by way of black cherry, liqueur soaked prunes, dried lavender tips. Has the dark, heady, kirsch, veering to licorice and tar.

Medium-full of body, tannin is firm, raspy spread - you might say gruff, tannin. Bit of black cherry compote, herb and spice. Balance, fades to a little licorice rope, fails to set the world alight.

Shows a latent hint of citrus oil, iodine, but beyond that offers little. Not a bad wine. Fading into the sunset of its life. 90
