2015 Mourvedre, Red Mountain

With spectacular exposure, Heart of the Hill Vineyard yields Mourvedre with deep ruby color, intense flavors and aromas of violet pastille, black plum, currant and savory notes with hints of smoke. The the brilliant, mouthwatering finish complements the rich layers and refined texture. This wine was fermented in traditional French concrete tanks and aged in French oak barrels. It is approachable now and will age gracefully for many years.

The forces that helped form Heart of the Hill and the Red Mountain geology in general, were truly gigantic. The deep bedrock of most of the Columbia Basin is basalt, formed from the massive lava outflows caused by intense volcanic activity. On top of the basalt lie layers of sediment deposited by repeated ancient floods – the largest floods ever recorded. On top of the sediment are layers of sand and silt from eons of erosion and weathering. The high alkalinity and high calcium carbonate content produce wines of incredible structure and longevity.
