The wine was matured in 100% new French barriques for 15 months providing structure, while complimenting the grape tannin and the terroir-based flavour profile of black, glazed cherries, dark chocolate, mocha and coffee that manifests itself each year in this single vineyard wine. This demonstrates the remarkable nature of the vineyard and is why we are proud to produce a wine of such iconic distinctiveness.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Mourvedre Old Garden, sourced from a vineyard planted in 1853, is a saturated purple color with aromas of wood smoke, underbrush, leather, blueberry compote, and blackberry. Full-bodied, structured, and powerful, this dense, layered effort is well-balanced, spicy, and lengthy. It demands 6-8 years of cellaring and will have a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2035.

Wine SpectatorRipe and generous, this is a sturdy red with a bit of a grip to the tannins, playing out its blackberry and tar flavors with precision. Drink now through 2013.
