I quickly finished my two bottles of 2011 Mark Herold, Flux


Lou picked up several bottles of the 2011 Mark Herold Wines, Flux from Last Bottle.  He shared two bottles with me, the second of which I drank within a few days of tasting the first bottle. My introduction to this particular wine occurred at the MacArthur Beverages California Barrel Tasting back in 2013.  I am a fan of this wine now just as I was three years ago.  It is a juicy, rugged wine with a lot to offer.

2011 Mark Herold Wines, Flux
This wine is a blend of 68% Grenache, 17% Syrah, and 15% Mourvedre.  Alcohol 14.7%.  The nose is full of blue fruit aromas.  In the mouth is a juicy start of berry fruit.  The spine of acidity is integrated with a dry, tannic texture from the very start.  The blue fruit flavors pick up some luxurious cream with acidity to match.  This is still youthfully rugged with a dry spices and a cola hint in the finish.  *** Now – 2019.
