The 2007 Mourvèdre, Thompson Vineyard is medium dark with black tea and white rose aromas. It has edgy tannins, nice spice/red fruit flavors and our trademark lingering finish. Made entirely with fruit from Thompson vineyard. We added in a little Syrah and a little Grenache to add complexity. (217 cases produced - very limited) The Thompson Vineyard Davis Clone Mourvèdre was harvested November 7 at 21.5 brix, 3.8 pH. Whole grape clusters were foot stomped in small bin boxes, chilled for 24 hours, and went through 10 days of fermentation. One barrel of Thompson Vineyard Syrah and one barrel of Thompson Vineyard Grenache were blended with seven barrels of Mourvedre to produce this wine. While it is legally a Mourvedre, it is our nod in the direction of the great Rhone Valley blends we admire. The must was inoculated with D254 and RC 212 yeast. Went through ML fermentation completing in January. One new American, one new French, and seven older barrels were used. Less than 14% alcohol. Racked in early July and again before bottling. Unfined and lightly filtered. • Bottled in August 2008. Food Pairing: This wine is slightly lighter than our other reds wines and pairs with a wide variety of foods. It is a superb Thanksgiving or Easter feast wine. Its fine tannin structure and grapey-pomegranate-spice aroma goes well with foods you might pair with a good Pinot Noir. Try it with braised or roasted beef, game hens, roast pork with baked apples. Less sweet, fruit sauces work well - try cherries, raspberries, or even black figs.
