For all of the entirely deserving superlatives I can lavish on the 2019 Force Majeure wines, Parvata comes with its own extra-special designation: if I were picking one of the '19s to drink now, this would absolutely be it. So gorgeous, so pleasureful. A rainbow of super-silky red, blue, and black fruits shines from horizon to horizon, intermingled with beguiling spice, grilled herb, and mineral accents. This broken record might scratch again—my favorite Rhone-style blend from Washington. Easy. -Marcus
95 points Vinous: "A scintillating blend of 42% Mourvèdre, 32% Syrah and 21% Grenache with just a touch of Cinsault and Counoise, the 2019 Parvata saw 20% new French oak before bottling. The hedonistic nose delivers dark currants and tar along with espresso bean, dried sage and blueberry compote. The palate is dense and beautifully textured, with a great veil of tension. An incredible spectrum of fruit, from red to dark to blue, combines with garrigue and stony undertones."
