I can't get over this wine. It's so inviting, like a nap in the sun; a child's laughter; an embrace from a loved one. Black cherry, violets, white pepper, oyster shell, charred meat and that's just the beginning. The wine is velvet smooth and long as a summer day. It continues with black raspberry, spring flowers, fresh pine needles, crushed black slate, and orange peel. It is something to be discovered...grace and contentment. What a joy!

The 2019 Gratitude Blend checks in as 70% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, and the rest Syrah, all from the Olsen Brother's vineyard in the Yakima Valley. Brought up in neutral barrels, it's a smoking good wine from Leighton offering medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of ripe red and black fruits, peppery herbs, iron, and loamy earth. With the fresher, focused, elegant style of the vintage, it brings ripe tannins, has a great mouthfeel, and beautiful length on the finish. Count me impressed. This is one thrilling expression of Mourvèdre that will keep for a decade.
