Pre-Release Exclusive
Mourvèdre is difficult to ripen in Mendocino County as it requires a very warm site to fully ripen the fruit. We've made wine from Mourvèdre grapes from 1994 to 2007, but 2007 was our last harvest from that site; the vineyard was so ancient that the vines ability to ripen fruit declined with each vintage. 2007 also marked the first time we harvested Syrah from Dark Horse Vineyards and we were delighted that the fruit was perfectly ripe. Fortuitously, they also farm a half-acre of Mourvèdre and beginning in 2012, Navarro was given access to the grapes. Because the field is tiny, only years with bountiful crops provide enough Mourvèdre to produce a separate bottling. This wine differs from previous Navarro Mourvèdre wines; this healthy and well-sited vineyard yields succulently ripe fruit which morphs into a handsome wine, full of brawn and vigor. Six bottle limit. Gold Medal winner. Best of Class.
