Ancient means old for a very long time. Mourvedre is an exotic grape found in the Rhone and Provence regions of France; Spain and Australia. Once widely planted in California (where it is often called Mataro), today only a tiny amount exists and Cline owns many of the historic ancient vines that remain. Redolent of dark plum, chocolate with a hint of oak, this juicy Ancient Vines Mourvedre is delicious now and will age for well over a decade. A perfect complement to herb-roasted meats, grilled pork tenderloin or dark chocolate. Cline's other exemplary Ancient Vines wines include Carignane and Zinfandel. Alc. 15.0% by vol.
