Review: 2014 Mourvedre, El Dorado

“It’s easy to fall for this charming mourvedre, which winemaker Chris Pittenger sources from four different sites planted from 1,300 to 2,700 feet in elevation.  The late-ripening variety flourishes in the Foothills’ hot summers and volcanic soils.  Like many Sierra Foothills mourvedre plantings, these vines are still young, yet this shows just how fresh and lithe the wines can be – it lasts with an herbal savor and a strawberry-red brightness that’s delicious, and feels like the product of very happy vines.”  Click to purchase
