"Deeper in color and much more dense, reserved, and even backwards, the 2009 Bosc Negre is a slightly longer term prospect and is a blend of 80% Mourvèdre and 20% Grenache that had the Mourvèdre aged all in new barrel and the Grenache in tank. Meaning “black woods” and named after a densely packed group of trees near the Mourvèdre plot, it delivers a spectacular mix of crème de cassis, currants, pepper, roasted meat, saline-like minerality, and hints of chocolate on the nose that is both rich and lively at the same time. Opening up over the evening and gaining additional floral and underbrush like qualities - all of which contribute to its overall lively, clean feel – it is a serious, full-bodied effort that displays gorgeous textural richness that’s paired with ripe, polished tannin, integrated acidity, and an overall seamless, elegant profile. Give bottles another 2-3 years in the cellar, and then enjoy over the following 12-15 years or more. It is an impressive bottle of wine that will stand toe to toe with the top Mourvèdre dominated Châteauneuf-du-Papes and Bandols."~JD

Too early - Feels like it will grow into a fine bottle of pleasure . . . but for today it simply is not ready to enjoy
