2020 Mourvèdre

Light with soft, subtle tannins. Notes of blueberry, black cherry with a slight hint of dried herbs and an earthy mouthfeel make this wine perfect for any classic Italian dish or tomato based meal such as gnocchi, pizza, or pasta.

 

REVIEWS

 

"This Southern Oregon Mourvedre from Talent's StoneRiver Vineyards will intrigue you with its combination of dark fruit balanced with savory and earthy notes. It offers complex aromas of dark berries combined with smokey notes of bacon fat, sweet tobacco and savory hints of black peppercorn, oregano and olive tapenade. On the palate, it delivers flavors of spiced grilled plums with a dusting of ground espresso mixed with a leathery, gamey earthiness."

 

- Gary Hayes, SavorNW 

 

"This 2017 Mourvedre is " rather remarkable with notes of ripe red fruit, violet and guimauve. Its structure is rather complex and light on its feet, making for fun and balanced wine.""
