Mourvédre

2010

The 2010 Mourvedre showcases the robust side of the grape, offering aromas of plum, fire seared rib-eye, cinnamon and dried rose-petal.  The big chewy palate is stuffed with cherry compote, dark cocoa, wild game and vanilla bean.  The chalky tannins and rich finish beg to be paired with a hearty autumn stew.
