2016 Bedrock Red Mourvedre
Sonoma Valley, California, $29.99
The Bedrock Mourvèdre simply dazzles with elements of earth and black licorice spice. The rich, brambly purple fruits that fill out the palate remain pure and true with use of no new oak - it spends its entire cellar life in two, three-year used French oak barrels. Due to the shy yielding nature of these ancient vines, they only have the chance to make this exceptional, single varietal wine every few years. We have no doubt that Rhone fans and newbies alike will love this wine for its plush fruits as much as its characteristic 'funk'. Cheers!
