Vineyard Notes:

Ancient Vines Mourvèdre draws from some of our oldest, most historic and shyest-bearing vineyard blocks. These blocks produce fruit that is of stunning concentration, a result of sensitive farming practices, the singular Oakley terroir, and a unique cooling band of air that flows in from the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers. By naturally restricting yields to only 2 to 3 tons per acre we are able to achieve a sublime expression of the Mourvèdre fruit.

Production Notes:

Individual lots of grapes were harvested separately according to ripeness and balance of acidity. Grapes underwent total de-stemming and a very gentle crushing to ensure a large proportion of whole berries in the must. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks with select cultured yeasts. It was then maintained at the ideal temperature to aid in the extraction of flavor and color. The wine was pressed off its skins at dryness before being racked to dark toasted American Oak (approximately 25% new) where it was gently aged for eight months and then stored in neutral cooperage.

Winemaker Notes:

Our Ancient Vines Mourvèdre offers a hint of Eucalyptus on the nose, distinct chocolate characteristics, luscious deep plum, and concentrated cherry. This scrumptious and unusually delightful wine has a substantial mouth-feel followed by soft tannins.

Food Pairing:

Try this wine with grilled lamb, wild mushroom ragout or peppercorn crusted beef tenderloin.
