The 2016 Mourvèdre is 100% Rodney’s Vineyard, located on the Fess Parker Home Ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley. Black cherry and wild black raspberry dominate the nose with baking spices, vanilla and an underlying note of scorched earth. Plum and black cherry won’t be missed on the palate with cinnamon, wild thyme and baking chocolate rounding out this heavy hitter.
This wine begs to be paired with rich foods to absorb the high tannins. Try with savory foods like beef short ribs, pork shoulder, lamb or barbecue.
