2015 :Nota Bene Mourvèdre – Heart of the Hill Vineyard : Red Mountain
The sense of place when making wine in small lots is very important in understanding this wine. The grapes were sourced from Heart of the Hill Vineyard on Red Mountain, a fairly new project for owner/grower Scott Williams. We thank him for the wisdom of his toil and see the results in our Mourvèdre that benefits from warm days on Red Mountain. It’s lush with fruit and spice followed by savory notes typical of this varietal, often supported with a dash of pepper. We hope you love it! Bottled 7/23/16; 50 cases produced; Alcohol: 15%; pH 3.60, TA 6.11 g/L
100% Mourvèdre (Heart of the Hill Vineyard)

The 2015 Mourvèdre Heart of the Hill Vineyard (100% Mourvèdre aged 22 months in 25% new American oak barrels) sports a ruby/purple-tinged color to go with a lifted bouquet of plums, violets, incense, and lead pencil. It's medium-bodied, has a rounded, supple texture, plenty of fruit, and a good finish. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck
