Murrieta's Well Touriga Francesca Los Tesoros Livermore Valley 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose, dusty with a bit of beet root, and some inky, ashy minerality along with moderately imposing toasty oaks spice. Big, powerful, and mouth filling with sweetish, blue plum fruit framed with hints of ink, rhubarb, and again minerals. Packed with soft tannins and fairly powerful for the Murrieta's Well line-up, this lineup, this shows real persistence to the rather intense blackberry fruit, gaining accents of cedar and smoke on the nose as well as the finish. Really pretty powerful if a bit unformed today. A wine to watch. 91pts
