Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2016 Reserve Mourvedre offers an inviting blend of aromas, including raspberry, clove, herbs, minerality, forest floor, and nutmeg. The flavors are rich and silky, with Bing cherry, cinnamon, and cooking spice, with balanced acidity, elegant tannins, and a long finish. 98% Mourvedre, 2% Grenache
Vineyard Notes
A cold winter and warm spring led to good fruit set and ample ripening season which created increased complexity and depth in the resulting wines. Sourced from Cripple Creek Vineyard in Templeton Gap AVA of Paso Robles, known for its warm days and cool nights with alluvial, sandy loam soils that produce well balanced, rich, Rhônes as well as flavorful Bordeaux's.
Winemaker Notes
All of the vineyard blocks were hand harvested separately in September, and delivered to the winery at 7:30 in the morning. Grapes were gently destemmed and delivered to open top tanks, allowed to cold soak and extract color for 24 hours, then punched down twice per day, and pressed off after ten days on the skins. Only French oak barrels were used to age the Mourvedre. The wine was then allowed to age until December of the following year, when it was put in the bottle.
