Once & Future 2018 Contra Costa County Mataro

Oakley Road Vineyard. This Mataro ie Mourvedre is from a 100+ year old own-rooted unirrigated vineyard. The nose shows a full and present black cherry with deep raspberry liqueur and some smoke and oak spice. The palate is present with zingy acid and full.  D&M Tasting Notes

Luscious, ripe raspberries and plums with hints of smoke, earth and spice. This may be the best, most pleasing Mataro to date.

Once and Future Wine Company is a return to the original vision I had for Ravenswood so many years ago. A project that specializes in wines from special vineyards made with a sensitivity to place and in a style that I personally love and believe in. Wines that force me to dust off the old redwood vats and get out a new punch down tool (my original is in the Smithsonian), wines that dye my hands that harvest shade of black/purple and sometimes force me to take an additional Advil some mornings. In short-wines of sweat, exertion, and love.  Joel Peterson, Wine Maker and Owner

The 2018 Mataro Oakley Road Vineyard is soft, fruity and absolutely delicious wine, with lovely red berry, spice and floral character. Bright saline notes extend the finish nicely. Medium in body and supple, with impeccable balance, the 2018 is so delicious. These own-rooted vines planted in the late 1890s confer real depth of flavor as well as personality. This is such a classy wine.  93 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous April 2020
