Nose

Our 2014 Mourvèdre seduces you with its intriguing floral notes—rose petal--allspice, raspberry and anise.

Palate

Still maintaining its youth, the mouth is full, rich, and lush and offers complex spice and berry components across the palate. After a year in the bottle, its elements are coming nicely together in a harmonious and well-structured fashion. Lots of pleasure to be discovered here.

Growing Conditions

We were graced with another outstanding vintage in 2014—in fact I just checked my notes and my comment on the final day of harvest, “sensational!” Sunshine and a warm dry spring gave way to mild and ideal growing conditions throughout the summer. An uneventful growing season without extremes is always welcome. Harvest began early and finished early, avoiding the potentially cool and rainy autumn conditions.
