2012 Château de Pibarnon Bandol

96 points Decanter: "Mourvedre purity from a maritime-limestone vineyard shows Bandol's power. Savoury aromas of garrigue with saline mineral notes followed by delicate silky tannins, powerful ripe black fruit and fine acidity. (EG)" (9/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While most 2012s from the region are slightly superficial and charming, Pibarnon’s 2012 Bandol Rouge has real depth and density, as well as fabulous notes of garrigue, toasted spices, dried Provencal herbs, and sweet red and black fruits. It has present tannin, yet they’re polished and nicely integrated into the wine, and while this beaut ...Read More »

2011 Château de Pibarnon Bandol

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More approachable, yet still with classic Mourvedre character, the 2011 Bandol (same blend/elevage as the 2010) offers ample blackberry, raspberry, underbrush, allspice and assorted floral nuances to go with a medium to full-bodied, balanced and seamless profile on the palate. Polished and already delicious, yet with fine tannin and solid concentration, it will continue to thrill for 10-15 years. These are classic Bandols that should not be missed! Run by the Saint-Victor family since 1975, Chateau Pibarnon lies in the northern part of the appellation an ...Read More »

2015 Chateau de la Noblesse Bandol Rosé Top Pick!
2015 Chateau de la Noblesse Bandol Rosé

Agnes and Henri Gaussen cultivate the vineyard of Château de la Noblesse, which has been in their family for generations. The wine is a blend of 50% Mourvedre, 25% Grenache and 25% Cinsault. The Noblesse Rosé was recently featured in the Forbes Top Twenty Rosés for the 2016 summer season: "This is about as good as it gets in Provence rosé...well almost as good as it gets, and certainly as good as it gets for the money. With its intense purity, its ripe, tangy fruit - thinking melon with a tinge of grapefruit here - and mineral-layered complexity it shows... Read More »

2013 Bodegas Volver "Tarima Hill" Monastrell Alicante

91 points Vinous: "Bright purple. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of fresh black and blue fruits, licorice, vanilla and peppery spices. Juicy and incisive on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry and cassis flavors that flesh out on the back half. Sappy and concentrated, yet quite lively, finishing with smooth, shaping tannins and a strong punch. This sexy wine went through malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak barrels for 20 months. (JR)" (1/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best is the 2013 Tarima Hill, which is 100% Monastrell from vines planted between 1935-1970 in ...Read More »

2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvedre Rosé Stellenbosch Top Pick!
2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvedre Rosé Stellenbosch

Too soon? Not for rosé from the Southern Hemisphere, and not for this perennial staff and customer favorite at K&L. This is one of our best selling and most raved about rosés every year. Hand-picked from Biodynamically farmed, old Mourvedre vines in a cool coastal sub-region of Stellenbosch, it's a fresh, elegant wine that does a fantastic impression of Bandol (which is also predominantly made from Mourvedre) but at a fraction of the cost! Waterkloof is a stunning property working with very natural, non-interventionist methods, the wines are pure, expres... Read More »

2012 Casa Castillo "Las Gravas" Jumilla

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A cuvée that has been changing over the years (and getting more focused and Mediterranean, I'd say) the 2012 Las Gravas is a blend of Monastrell with 15% Syrah and 15% Garnacha; the Garnacha vineyards in the state come into production so the winery has more grapes to use. This wine saw a big change with the 2008 vintage, when Cabernet Sauvignon disappeared from the blend and got more focused and true to its birthplace. 2012 could be the finest vintage to date, as there was no 2012 Pie Franco, as quantities were really short and those grapes are in this b ...Read More »

2013 Chateau de la Noblesse Bandol

Agnes and Henri Gaussen cultivate the vineyard of Château de la Noblesse, which has been in their family for generations. Bandol is ground zero for wines made of Mourvèdre, and the 2010 exhibits all the dark and brooding personality you could ask of the grape. With notes of blackberry and dark chocolate, plus a firm tannic core, this is begging to be eaten with a hearty lamb stew.

2015 Liquid Farm "Vogelzang Vineyard" Happy Canyon Rosé

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I loved the 2015 Rose Mourvedre Vogelzang, and it reminds me a rose from the seaside village of Bandol, in the south of France. Giving up lots of strawberry, orange blossom and spice, it has notable richness and texture, yet is fresh, vibrant and lively. Made from 95% Mourvedre and 5% Grenache, drink it over the coming year. (JD)" (8/2016) K&L Notes: From the producer: "A vibrant coppery pink, tons of savory minerality, pomegranate, white raspberry and floral notes all hop from the glass. Minerality continues to lead on the palate with bursts of blood orange, fresh p... Read More »

2014 Primitivo Quiles "Cono 4" Monastrell Alicante

Here is a perfect example of what Spain's many lesser-known D.O.s are capable of when good vineyards are combined with sensible, traditionally-minded work in the cellar. In this case, the wine is fermented and aged in a single large vat, or cono, known as "cono 4." Composed of 100% Monastrell, this wine has a fresh, dark cherry-fruited palate with subtle dark licorce notes and surprisingly fresh acidity for Monastrell from this sun drenched Mediterranean area of Spain. Try this with braised meat or lamb, or alternatively a hearty chicken and rice dish; A... Read More »

2013 Tablas Creek Adelaida District Mourvèdre

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Light black cherry, turned black loam and dried rose petals show on the nose of this straightforward and earthy bottling. Black raspberry and dark cranberry fruit consume the tart, edgy palate, with shaved licorice, sagebrush and a touch of pine needle completing the savory picture. A good lesson in fresh Mourvèdre." (8/2016) 91 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Pungent aromas of dark berries, lavender pastille and succulent herbs, along with building spiciness. Supple and broad on the palate, offering fresh blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a jolt of cracked pepper. Shows ...Read More »

The estate is owned by the Portalis family, who have owned this property since before the French Revolution. Currently under the direction of Cyrille Portalis, the estate is farmed organically and wines made naturally, with no destemming.

2014 Forlorn Hope "Rorick Vineyard" Calaveras County Mataro

Recently named a "Winemaker to Watch" by San Francisco Chronicle, Forlorn Hope's Matthew Rorick is dedicated to producing wines that represent an "eclectic curation of California's lesser-known and forgotten." (JB, 02/2013) The Mataro (Mourvedre) grapes are grown at 2000 feet, gaining beautiful acidity and freshness that translate directly into the glass. You'll get seductive floral and black fruit notes, with a light-on-its-feet texture that matches well with food. An Italian sub would be gangbusters with this.

2015 Los Frailes Monastrell Valencia

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is also a red unoaked 2015 Monastrell kept in cement until bottling where it underwent malolactic after fermenting in stainless steel. It's a nice ruby color, not too dark, with a nose still redolent from the reductive media where it was fermented and possibly the recent bottling. With time it developed some meaty notes not that far from what you often find in northern Rhône reds. The palate is medium-bodied with some tannins to stand up to food. (LG)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: Produced from organically cultivated Monastrell in the D.O. of Valencia, this stainless st... Read More »

2013 Bodegas Casa Castillo "Pie Franco" Jumilla (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is no 2012 Pie Franco so I tasted the 2013 Pie Franco, the leading old-vine, ungrafted Monastrell wine from Casa Castillo. This is an indigenous wine showing the character of the place, grape and vintage quite transparently. 50% full clusters were foot trodden and fermented in cement vats and aged in used 500-liter barrels. I had the chance to taste the wine a mere week before bottling and it was showing truly superb. It reminded me of a hypothetical blend of 2010 and 2006, perhaps more elegant at this stage, with subtle earth and tree bark aromas ...Read More »

2012 Tablas Creek Paso Robles Mourvèdre

91-93 points Vinous: "Savory herbs, mint, new leather, smoke and tobacco form a hugely attractive tapestry of aromas and flavors in the 2012 Mourvèdre. A dark, mysterious wine, the 2012 is also quite deep, nuanced and impeccable in its balance. There is plenty of varietal character in the glass. Once again, Tablas Creek has turned out a mind-bending number of fabulous wines, from delicious entry-level whites and reds all they way up to the top selections, which remain very reasonably priced considering the quality.

2011 Villa Creek "Damas Noir" Paso Robles Mourvèdre

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Also made from 100% Mourvedre, the 2011 Damas Noir exhibits classic varietal typicity in its dark, purple fruits, iron, beef blood, white pepper and leather-driven bouquet. Not losing a beat on the palate either, it gives up a full-bodied, rich, angular and chewy feel, with good concentration, ripe, yet edgy tannin and a great finish. Give it another year and enjoy it through 2026. (JD)" (8/2014) Wine Spectator: "A streak of loamy earth and clay runs through the modest cherry and wild berry fruit. Tannic and gritty, flexing a muscular side. Best from 2016 through 2028. (We ...Read More »
