2005 Core Mourvédre Mister Moreved Cuyama Valley Santa Barbara County

A very exciting wine! Cloudy dark raspberry cream color; dirt, Eucalyptus, menthol, garlic, raisins, apricots in the hot sun, butterscotch, vanilla, rose and geranium aromas; full-bodied with dusty, almost powdery tannins, Pixie Stick raspberry, lavender, bell pepper, bush, burnt toast, plastic container in the heat, rose, tomato, geranium and licorice flavors with a floral finish. Definitely improved after being opened overnight. Next day sharpness was more rounded and less overbearing. 82%-MO, 18%-GR. $40; 4 out of 5 stars.
