Cline ‘Ancient Vines’ Mourvèdre 2017
Mourvèdre is a rare grape that was popular and well-planted back in the 1930s, then almost disappeared from America in the 1970s. It is now seeing a resurgence in popularity. We are lucky to have many of these treasured, old, original vines planted on their own European rootstock. This wine is a stunner, you should bring a bottle to your friend’s house. The tannins are structured and balanced. The flavor is composed of plum, cherry, and chocolate with a nice, warm lingering finish.
