2016 Mourvedre Fort Ross-Seaview Sonoma Coast
Fort Ross-Seaview Sonoma Coast
Of all the Rhone varietals, Mourvedre is greatly dependent on where it is grown. At the Cinghiale vineyard, the cool maritime influence moderates its power, while the full sun exposure allows it to fully ripen. Our Mourvedre shows off all the power of the varietal, with dark blackberry, sweet tobacco, bergamot, and fresh herbal aromas. The wine has a full entry with a weighty and structured mouthfeel, yet moves across the palate with finesse. There is a brilliant balance to this wine allowing it show both its strength as well its beauty.
