Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2014 Vintage):
"A blockbuster Mourvèdre is the 2014 Gratitude Olsen Brothers Vineyard, which incorporates 25% Grenache and 5% Syrah, all of which was cofermented with no destemming and aged 18 months in neutral demi-muids and puncheons. From a higher elevation site (1,400 feet) in the Yakima Valley, its deep purple color is followed by killer notes of blueberries, crushed rocks, Asian spices and exotic, peppery nuances. This full-bodied, seamless and impeccably balanced 2014 will keep for at least a decade."

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast: #62 Top 100 Wines of 2016: (2013 vintage)
“This wine is a blend of 70% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache and 5% Syrah. It opens with achingly pure red currant, cranberry, black pepper, blue fruit, orange peel and dried herb aromas that completely captivate the senses. The palate shows a hypnotic sense of purity along with a sense of elegance that is dazzling. Smoked meat flavors linger on the long finish.”

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: (2013 vintage)
“Inspired by the wines of Domaine Tempier in Bandol, Leighton’s 2013 Gratitude checks in as a Mourvèdre dominated blend that incorporates 25% Grenache and 5% Syrah, all of which was aged in two- to three-year-old puncheons. Cured meats, spice-box, black currants and blackberry nuances all emerge from this sweetly fruited, layered, downright sexy Mourvèdre that has fine, polished tannin and a great finish. Not harvested until the last week of October, drink this rock star 2013 over the coming decade, and I certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see it evolve for longer.”
