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 is a full-bodied wine that shows a wild component. The wine’s initial flavors start with dark fruits and wild herbs. This varietal also has a gamey quality, differentiating it from other wines. The aromas radiate black plum and black raspberries and include mandarin sauce, leather, mushroom, and black pepper. This wine will pair exceedingly well with rich, hearty dishes and bold flavors from the grill. Drink now through 2028.
