2008 Mourvedre

No Longer Available

Tasting Notes

The hidden gem of Rhone-style varietals, this Mourvedre is characterized by flavors and aromas of dark cherry, licorice, cloves, and white pepper.  A soft velvety dark chocolate finish makes this wine a great choice for any occasion.  Pair with marinated lamb or a classic dish like roasted duck breast in plum sauce.

Winemaker’s Notes

The full flavored grapes that made this wine were handpicked at optimum ripeness, then sorted and crushed.  Fermented in one ton bins, this handcrafted wine aged for 15 months in French and American Oak Barrels.

75% French and 25% American Oak Barrels
Alcohol by Volume:  14.8%
