The majority of the grapes were sourced from Camp Four Vineyard while about 26% were blended in from Rodney’s Vineyard on the Fess Parker Winery home ranch, both located in the Santa Ynez Valley. We chose to blend in about 3% Syrah, adding a little structure and spice while rounding out the rich animal quality of Mourvèdre.
There is no mistaking this Mourvedre with its rich dark garnet color in the glass. On the nose, scents of wild black raspberry, black cherry, baking spices and leather combine with vanilla, rose petal and scorched earth. The palate exudes fruit flavors of plum and black cherry while mouthfeel evokes flavors of cinnamon, vanilla, baking chocolate and wild thyme. Mourvedre is best paired with flavors that harmonize with it earthy character, try pairing with roasted meats, root vegetables or grilled duck.
