It was nice. Definitely overpriced, but it was one of the first purchases I made through a booze delivery app, so I was just curious. I don't recall what the price was of that individual one, but it was typical for these California oddballs. I thought the alcohol and fruit was very well balanced, but the body was light. Not like a southern France Mourvèdre at all. Kind of reminded me of those California Pinot Noirs that taste like Syrah.

I take it you were a bit underwhelmed, especially for the price? I'm still sitting on mine.

Yeah- I felt like the QPR wasn't really there for what I could get from the old world (was originally thinning of joining the mailing list, but seems like 2/3 of their wines are Mourvèdre)

I find it puzzling why I actually do like 100% mourvedre wines a lot. I generally dislike full bodied / higher abv / hotter stuff, but there's something about that particular mourvedre flavor (like a pleasing turpentine? or sometimes like an old sweater in the best possible way?) that I find strangely appealing.

If I go somewhere I'm not familiar with and there's a 100% Monastrell or Mataro on the BTG list I'll probably grab that first just to get a feel for the wine program.

This wine was oddly thin, it was surprising.

I did for an hour. Stinky funk on the nose. Really nice wine.

Had a few bottles of "Aonair" wine the other evening. Really, really tasty. I am not the most knowledgeable about wine, but I thought it was pretty excellent stuff.

@Piobaire you think it is worth re-upping on the next go around from Full Pull on Sept 21?
