The Cross Block Mourvedre is another simply fascinating wine from Upsidedown in this vintage. This comes from Horse Heaven Hills and benefits from the stony soils and southern exposure, which all translate beautifully into the wine. It opens to striking aromatics of raspberries, plum, strawberry, cherries fresh florals, spices and earthy minerals all coming together in the glass. On the palate, this possesses lovely elegance, with a fine, silky texture and fantastic overall balance and focus. This continues to impress with sweetly ripened red berries and floral character at its center, which expand through the long, pretty finish. Drink over the next decade plus.
