Tasting Notes:

The 2016 Mourvèdre is a blend of 89% Mourvèdre (clone 4), 9% Syrah, and 2% Viognier that saw 70% stems and spent 21 months in 50% new French oak. This ripe, decadent beauty has a rocking core of red and black currants, smoked meats, chocolate, pepper, violets, and beef blood. It's rich, powerful, and concentrated, has a stacked mid-palate, ripe, polished tannins, and a great, great finish. This powerful, sexy wine delivers the goods.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Andremily is a new venture by Jim Binn, a former cellar master at Sine Qua Non. Binn established his Santa Barbara area winery in 2011, he named this after his two children, Andrew and Emily. Binn leases specific acreage within the prestigious White Hawk and Larner Vineyards in Santa Barbara County, and had his first harvest in 2012. Only 250 cases of Syrah were made and it was available primarily through mailing list. Binn focuses on Rhone varietals and has earned a reputation for his winemaking skills, having honed his skills working for Manfred Krankl, the rock star-style proprietor/winemaker at SQN, starting in 1996.
