Cline Cellars Mourvedre Ancient Vines 2012

Cline Cellars Mourvedre Ancient Vines 750ML 2012     
Sku: 521145

The Ancient Vines Mourvèdre draws from some of our oldest, most historic and shyest-bearing vineyard blocks. These blocks produce fruit that is of stunning concentration. We are able to reach this concentration as a result of sensitive farming practices, the singular Oakley terroir, and a unique cooling band of air that flows in from the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers. By naturally restricting yields to only 2 to 3 tons per acre we are able to achieve a sublime expression of the Mourvèdre fruit.

Tasting notes
Our Ancient Vines Mourvèdre offers distinct chocolate characteristics and a luscious deep plum flavor. Tannins are soft with a substantial mouth-feel.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Nov 2014)
The 2012 Mourvedre Ancient Vines is a 100% Mourvedre aged eight months in 25% new American oak. The tannins are sweet and there are no rustic characteristics in this meaty, dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Notes of blueberries, raspberries and cherries intermixed with camphor and soil undertones are found in this medium-bodied, supple, delicious Mourvedre. Drink now-2017.
