Force Majeure Parvata

2017 Force Majeure Parvata - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Bright ruby-red. Lovely verve to the aromas of blackberry, blueberry, licorice and sexy oak. Densely packed and fresh, with its flavors of crushed blackberry, bitter chocolate, licorice and exotic Asian spices showing much more grip than the 2015 bottling. Still a bit youthfully rigid today and in need of a year or two of patience. My second bottle showed similar aromas and flavors but was richer, broader and more pliant, finishing with ripe, fine-grained tannins and building length. (14.8% alcohol; aged in 25% new French oak, mostly 400- and 500-liter barrels; 3.89 pH) - Stephen Tanzer"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"There are only 325 cases of the 2016 Parvata, a blend of 69% Mourvèdre, 21% Syrah, and 10% Grenache brought up in 30% new, mostly larger barrels. Deep ruby-colored, with a beautiful bouquet of black raspberries, white pepper, spiced meats, and graphite, this hits the palate with full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and beautiful length."
