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.
