I can’t pass up buying an interesting Mourvèdre…especially one that people I know love and constantly talk about on social media (note: social media DOES sell wine). So, when I stumbled across a bottle from La Clarine Farm, I had to bring it home with me. La Clarine Farm was started by Hank Beckmeyer and Caroline Hoel in 2001. They adhere to biodynamic farming practices and produce beautiful, terroir driven wines. I was definitely excited to pour my first glass!
100% Mourvèdre from the Sierra Foothills. Native yeasts, minimal CO2. Screwcap closure. 14.2% alcohol and a suggested retail of $26.
Lovely aromas of violet and earth welcome in a vibrant palate. There are notes of red fruit, spice, and herbs along with healthy acidity. Beautiful and bright…it’s a shame it is already sold out!
