Syrah Mourvedre

2016 Syrah Mourvedre

“All Ojai Alisal wines are made exclusively with grapes from vineyards farmed by hand in Upper Ojai, CA.”

In 2016 we harvested our Mourvedre for the first time, and we had small but excellent crops of both Syrah and Mourvedre harvested on the same day. We took a risk and decided to co-ferment both varietals and the results are amazing! Flavors of tart cherries, chewy red fruit, chocolate, coffee and a bit of pepper with beautiful rounded tannins and a long finish.

Best of the Best!
