The combination of 105 year old vines from Contra Costa and the low crop yielded a Mourvèdre of solid color with enticing aromas of Italian plum, blackberry and cinnamon. The old vines contribute a full, round mouthfeel and soft, silky tannins. Aged in neutral old French oak barrels, the absence of new oak tannin allows the quality of the fruit and texture to shine, creating an experience as close to tasting fresh, ripe fruit as one can imagine. Drink now with grilled steaks, winter stews and game. Drinkable now, this wine has a history of aging gracefully for 5–10 years.
