Tasting Notes
The 2014 Estate Mourvédre shows some red and blue fruit up front but is dominated by savory aromatics like tobacco, black olive, and dried herbs such as sage and lavender. The palate has modest tannins and structure coupled with a sense of minerality and fresh acidity on the finish.
Winemaker's Notes
This is a 50/50 blend of two clones of Mourvédre grown at our Stoney Creek estate vineyard at 2740’ and planted in well draining decomposed granite soils. The wine is fermented in small batches with manual punch-downs twice a day. After 3-5 days of cold soaking at 55 degrees, the tanks are allowed to warm up and fermentation kicks in spontaneously. The wine spends 18 months undisturbed in French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulfur added.
