Mourvèdre is planted in two distinct locations throughout Anna’s Vineyard. The diverse locations give the winemaker different nuances that can aid in the crafting of a well-balanced wine. The fruit was picked at night, de-stemmed, and quickly followed by optical sorting and foot treading. Fermentation proceeded in concrete tanks with indigenous yeast cultures. The wine matured in a combination of new and neutral French oak barrels and puncheons.
This Mourvèdre boasts an abundance of personality. Blackberry preserves and cocoa nibs coincide in the nose with violet and Finocchiona salami. These aromas lead into lush vanilla, blackberry, and ripe strawberries that mingle on the palate with cinnamon, nutmeg, and macadamia nut coffee. The flavors lead to a long and lingering finish. Drink now through 2030.
