My friend Eric brought me a barrel sample in May and I remember thinking, sure, why not? Dark fruit, dried herbs, robust round tannins yet sufficient acid, and Mourvèdre’s signature gravelly-clay thing. Its a really good wine from 100-year-old vines growing in deep sand at the confluence of the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers. The fact is Mourvèdre is best (and typically) blended with Grenache and Syrah–its rarely great when it stands alone. Fortunately for us the winery where this came from didn’t have the ideal ratios for their GSM blend so they decided to sell these six barrels. As you’ll see, this Mourvèdre is quite balanced and complete on its own… its a lovely wine just as it is.

This is the kind of wine you’ll want to come back to over and over again. It will please you like a friend… a forever friend.  This wine is comfort. 

$1 will be donated for each bottle sold to the Napa Bookmine Literary Foundation for the community of Napa Valley and children’s access to books through the foundation. Thank you!

    This wine is a find...and a steal

    Super quaffable, surprising for this blending grape. It has become our go-to house wine! (Due to the pandemic we can’t share it with anyone, unfortunately. More for us. 😉 )

    Love me a robust wine

    I’ve been trying to chase down a Mourvedre since I had a bottle by chance at a wine stroll in 2016 (ahh pre pandemic times). Hard to find in southern CA, so I jumped at this. Well worth the price and will be enjoying this all to myself unless I decide to be nice and give one or two as gifts.
