Tasting Notes

We continue to be outdone by the bear... If you remember the main reason we make a Non Vintage Mourvedre, is because the local family of bears love to feed in this specific block of grapes, and yes just this variety. And we continue to make a wonderful version of a Non Vintage Mourvedre. This wine combines vintages from 17’ and 18’, resulting in amazing balance and flavor. When making a Non Vintage wine, you get the best of both worlds, youthful vibrancy, and complexity from older wine. This wine smells of earth and berry, and opens to flavors of candied Cherry, Rhubarb, and spice. The youthful version of this wine will display exciting bright nuance, that will give way with age, to an earthy, mushroomy component. Pairs with any wild meats, earthy vegetables like mushrooms and potatoes.
