Our 2014 Mourvèdre was crafted from the unique terroir of McKinley Springs Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. It shows intriguing nuances of rose petal, rhubarb, white pepper and dried herbs on the nose. It is medium-bodied with silky tannins, integrating well with toasty oak. Ripe raspberry is very noticeable in the mid palate along with the perfect amount of acidity for balance and structure.
The warm site of McKinley Springs in the Horse Heaven Hills brings mature tannins, bright fruit and herbal flavors to our exciting Mourvèdre. Bold and expressive Syrah from the same vineyard and bright, fruity Malbec from Olsen Vineyards in Yakima provide wonderful blueberry aromas to the wine and give it a lush, velvety mouthfeel.
