The 2017 Mourvedre is a testament to our efforts working with this variety for the last three years.   We have continued to refine our handling of this fruit and the results have been rewarding.  Ron Mansfield farms this vineyard in the Apple Hill region of El Dorado, sitting at 3000ft elevation with cooler nighttime temperatures to preserve acidity.  The vines are head trained on a vertical cordon and dry farmed even in the warmest of years.   The wine is a bright example of what can be done in a warm vintage with early phenolic ripeness.

Foot tread and fermented 100% whole cluster this is a wine that is bottled early to be enjoyed during the summer months.  Aromatics of Asian plum sauce with hints of dried strawberry in the background lead to a palate of bright red fruit and mouthwatering acidity.  Drink Now.
