2017 Mourvedre

"One of the more underrated Rhone varieties and an exciting new varietal from Rogue Valley, Oregon. A full-bodied Red on the lighter side with 13.9% alcohol content, StoneRiver's Mourvedre stands out with it's strong fruity flavors and hints of smoke and spice. Big red fans will love the taste, smell and way this Mourvedre feels on the palate."
