2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic) Top Pick!
2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic)

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 Mourvèdre 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 Mourvèdre), but at a fraction of the cost! Waterkloof is a stunning property working with very natural, non-interventionist methods. The wines are pure, expre... Read More »

2012 Bodegas Castaño "Hécula" Monastrell Yecla

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The basic offering from proprietor Ramon Castano Santa, who owns a whopping 1,000 acres in Yecla, is the 2012 Hecula, which is sourced from a non-irrigated, single vineyard planted with 100% Monastrell. Aged in both tank and French oak, it comes from 60-80-year-old vines planted in limestone soils at a relatively high elevation of over 1,600 feet. Its opaque purple color is followed by copious aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, camphor, licorice, white flowers and a chalky limestone/dusty character. Full-bodied, rich and well-balanced, it is an in ...Read More »

2014 Bodegas El Nido "Clio" Jumilla Top Pick!
2014 Bodegas El Nido "Clio" Jumilla

Looking for a consistently over-achieving, full-bodied red? How about this for a track record? (all scores from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate) 2003 - 96 points; 2004 - 97 points; 2005 - 95 points; 2006 - 95 points; 2007 - 94 points, 2008 - 94 points, 2009 - 90 points. The wine is a blend of 70% old vine Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon that was barrel-aged for 22-26 months in French and American oak. It bears Clio's hallmark opulence, with bold aromas and flavors, a thick, dense palate, and a long finish. A powerful, decadent wine.

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.

2014 Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Jumilla

An excellent value from Spain. Monastrell grapes for this wine came from 45-year-old parcels on their estate vineyards. Shallow, chalky soils on a bed of limestone and rock combine with an arid climate to produce the low yields required for wine of this complexity. After harvesting, the deep purple grapes are whole-cluster macerated for 25 days and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The wine possesses a very dark cherry color with purple tones. In the nose it has powerful aromas of red berries and smoky tones. The palate displays excellent fruit a... Read More »

2012 Château Pradeaux Bandol

90 points Wine Spectator: "This has a broad and juicy feel, with a mix of blood orange, peach and Earl Grey tea notes backed by a light tobacco hint. Shows a good stony echo on the finish. Delicious, with the substance to match with poached salmon or crab crakes. Drink now." (6/2017) K&L Notes: Among the producers of Bandol, Pradeaux is frequently regarded as primus inter pares, first among equals. Refreshing sea breezes help to extend a growing season that favors the Mourvedre grape. And it is the Mourvedre that is the foundation of Bandol. At Pradeaux, the Mourvedre is used almost exclusivel... Read More »

2014 Bodegas Olivares "Altos de la Hoya" Jumilla

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Monastrell Altos de la Hoya is produced from the fruit of dry-farmed, ungrafted, old Monastrell vines and some 5% Garnacha. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in 10,000-liter stainless steel tanks and matured for six to eight months in used barriques and larger oak vats. The nose is clean and textbook Mediterranean with aromas of esparto grass, tree bark, blackberries and thyme, with perfectly integrated oak. The palate feels compact and balanced, with fine tannins and good acidity. I think this shows very well for such a challenging vintage in ...Read More »

2013 Bodegas Casa Castillo "Pie Franco" Jumilla

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 »

2013 Hewitson "Old Garden" Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The vineyard was planted in 1853, so these are some seriously old vines, yielding seriously concentrated fruit. The briary, blackberry fruit is lavished with toasty, vanilla-scented French oak, which melds nicely into a full-bodied, slightly creamy-textured wine that avoids any sensation of warmth or heaviness. Drink now - 2030. (JC)" (6/2017) K&L Notes: In 1853 Friedrich Koch planted this Mourvèdre vineyard in the heart of the Barossa Valley in the area now known as Rowland Flat. Nurtured in deep sand over a bed of limestone the vines flourished. By the 1880s the lo... Read More »

2013 Carlisle Sonoma County Mourvedre

90-92 points Jancis Robinson: "A powerful, structured wine, the 2013 Mourvèdre serves up a compelling mélange of dark fruit, game, dried flowers, pipe tobacco, smoke and savory herbs. The flavors pulse with a real sense of energy in a flavorful red that delivers outstanding quality and personality for the money. (AG)" (1/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Old World meets New in this compelling Mourvèdre. Lively aromas of dried cherry and smoked beef open to well-structured, layered flavors of raspberry, grilled herb and bitter chocolate. The tannins ease in on the finish. (Web-2016) (TF)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the reds, the 2013 Mo ...Read More »

2012 Carlisle "Bedrock Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Mourvèdre

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Displays potent scents of black and blue fruit compote, licorice, pipe tobacco and violet, with a peppery note adding lift. Chewy blueberry and boysenberry flavors are firmed by juicy acidity and become spicier with air. The violet quality comes back on the perfumed finish, which features rounded tannins and a touch of succulent herbs. (ST)" (5/2014) 90-92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Mourvèdre Bedrock Vineyard wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth. The 2012 possesses lovely iron and ferrous notes that add complexity to the fruit. In this vintage, the Bedrock prese ...Read More »

2012 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "We finished the tasting with the inky-purple 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape. A cellar selection by Manfred Krankl (of Sine Qua Non) of mostly Mourvedre, yet with a splash of Grenache and even some white varieties, it was aged in two new 300-liter French oak barrels before being bottled (in magnum only) unfined and unfiltered. It’s a massive, masculine and structured Chateauneuf du Pape that needs to be tasted to be believed. Cassis, creamy licorice, jammy blackberry and crushed flowers are only a few of the nuances here, and it hits the palate with full-bodied ...Read More »
