FORCE MAJEURE Red Wine 'Paravata' 2014

The 2014 'Parvata' by Force Majeure is a gorgeous wine from this estate. The name for this red blend is derived from a Sanskrit name for 'mountain' in connection to their Red Mountain vineyard. The Rhône blend has a massive dark core. Entirely sourced from the Force Majeure Vineyard, the wine is a blend of 40% Mourvèdre, 35% Syrah and 25% Grenache. The wine has a bouquet of smoked brisket, provencale herbs, sagebrush, blackberry pie and hints of mocha. There are flavors of black cherry, mocha, black olive, creosote and hints of black pepper that lead to an extremely long finish. The fruit weight and minerality of this wine is exceptional. This massive wine needs another year of bottle age to settle and for more fruit to integrate. If enjoying young, this will benefit from extended air contact.
