Just remember “Move Over Dear.” Our Ancient Vines Mourvèdre offers a hint of Eucalyptus on the nose, distinct chocolate characteristics and a luscious deep plum flavor. This scrumptious and unusually delightful wine has a substantial mouth-feel followed by soft tannins.
Review
"This wine starts with dark fruit, cocoa powder (like when you dump a packet of Swiss Miss in a cup and that little mushroom cloud of cocoa dust erupts) and a savory/meaty/smoky quality on the nose. Nice. More juicy dark fruit flavors (dark cherry mainly) on the palate, with a latte-like creaminess and a faintly herbal note. The mouthfeel is slightly sappy and the tannins are unobtrusive, but without leaving the wine feeling flabby and unstructured. This wine put a smile on my face,"

Wine maker notes
The 2009 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. We are able to reach this concentration as 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.
