Long prized by winemakers in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Mourv ̄dre remains largely unknown to many California wine drinkers. Perhaps it is because the variety ripens late, discouraging many winemakers eager to conclude the long harvest season with hearty, robust Cabernet Sauvignon. But for the patient grower, Mourv ̄dre promises similar rewards to its famed counterpart, delivering the dense tannic structure, full-bodied fruit and savory richness that has earned Cabernet Sauvignon its acclaim. Enhanced by the bright acidity of Grenache and Syrah’s seductive decadence, this offering showcases all the hallmarks of our French favorites.
