Our Ancient Vines Mourvèdre offers distinct chocolate characteristics and a luscious deep plum flavor. Tannins are soft with a substantial mouth-feel.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2011 Mourvedre Ancient Vine, from Contra Costa County, was aged eight months in one-quarter new American oak. This dark ruby-colored Mourvedre is not the least bit rustic or astringent, as some of its peers tend to be. It offers tasty blueberry and raspberry flavors as well as good purity and elegance, and a medium-bodied finish. (Aug 2013)

The Ancient Vines Mourvèdre draws from some of our oldest, most historic and shyest-bearing vineyard blocks. These blocks produce fruit that is of stunning concentration. We are able to reach this concentration as a result of sensitive farming practices, the singular Oakley terroir, and a unique cooling band of air that flows in from the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers. By naturally restricting yields to only 2 to 3 tons per acre we are able to achieve a sublime expression of the Mourvèdre fruit.
