Mourvèdre has a checkered past in California. A Spanish varietal (monastrell) that migrated to the south of France. It  was imported to California in the late 1800’s as mataro. Often inter-planted with zinfandel, it added color and diversity to the field blend. Better clones arrived in Paso Robles in 1990 which demonstrate the full potential of this varietal.

Our Anna’s Vineyard Mourvèdre has all the components of elevation, sun exposure and the coastal influenced afternoon cool down. A late ripening variety it avoided the historic April frosts of 2011.  A late October harvest with fermentation on native yeast it has developed, with barrel age, now on its best adolescent behavior.
