Winemaking - Mourvèdre

Typical Mourvèdre doesn't have near the tannin structure as some if its Bordeaux counterparts.  This Mourvèdre from Red Mountain is a little different so, we left the skins in contact for an extended time to extract more flavor, color, and backbone.  This was then pressed and put into neutral puncheons for aging.  The wine was never racked and then bottled as a single varietal.
