With a dusty, cola-like quality, this flirty Mourvèdre gets better and better over time in the glass, unveiling layers of floral, earthy and wild raspberry notes sprinkled with a suggestion of gamy meat. With firm, chewy tannins and a mouth-coating texture, it showcases El Dorado's decomposed granite soils and the prowess of the winemaker with these grapes.
