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.

Mourvèdre can only be grown in specific locales throughout the world. Paso Robles has a climate that provides the right conditions for the grape to shine. The wine starts with a fresh nose of blackberry and vanilla, incorporating reminiscent scents of California underbrush. The palate expresses an intriguing combination of plum, freshly dried tobacco leaves, and a salami characteristic, sometimes described as gamey. These flavors combine into a wine that can be enjoyed in the near term or with a little age. Enjoy now through 2025.
