Wine Review: This bright ruby colored Mourvedre from Cline opens with a smoky campfire like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a rich and lush red cherry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins build up and linger for quite sometime. This Very Good value wine would be perfect with Theresa’s meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Just remember "Move Over Dear." Our Ancient Vines Mourvedre offers distinct chocolate characteristics and a luscious deep plum flavor. Tannins are soft with a substantial mouth-feel. Ancient Vines Mourvedre is a scrumptious and unusually delightful wine. We recommend trying this wine with anything grilled.
