(2013 Vintage) Ancient Vines Mourvedre 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.
From vines over 100 years old which give fruit of remarkable concentration, this is Contra Costa Mourvedre par excellence. The Ancient Vines Mourvedre, grown in the warm, sandy soils of Oakley California, produces a wine that has a distinct chocolate character. The tannins are soft and the wine has good weight in the mouth while the flavours and aromas of cherry and mint help make this delicious wine an unusual delight.
