2016 Mourvedre, The Prospector

2016 Mourvèdre, The Prospector

This wine carries a classic, generous, yet nervy style

El Dorado

The Prospector vineyards are in California gold country and the wine is named for those countless men and women who searched, often without luck, for gold. Hearty, earthy, meaty, and authentic, this Mourvèdre bottling leaves one wanting more.

Tasting Note:

A rich and dense aromatic profile of mushrooms, yarrow, dusty earth, and cassis. The texture has opposing definitions and is both tangy and dry, like black plum skin. Flavor focuses on black cherry and cranberries that have been cooked down with warming spices. This fruit focus is highlighted by a mature tannin structure and lightly peppered finish.
