2015 Twinkle

2015 Twinkle

A light bodied red wine of mostly Mourvedre to serve slightly chilled

California

In 2015 we made a Mourvèdre lot that was unusually light. In body and color. Tasting it throughout the year we often referred to it as our little Twinkle and talked about how lovely it would taste chilled. For the final blend we added Grenache and a light bodied Syrah to round it out while allowing it’s charm to still shine through. Serve it like a white wine, closer to 55 degrees and you will be quite pleased!

Tasting Note: Bright red fruit aromas jump out of the glass and surprise those expecting a gamey Mourvèdre. This is a very pretty nose of mulberry and strawberry laced with herbs like sage and spiced apple and rose petal. This is a nervy, light bodied red wine that finishes with black currants, cherries, and a subtle sweet and spicy background of nasturtium.
