Alta Colina 2013 Mourvedre "Sun Worshipper" Estate - Paso Robles


Alta Colina 2013 Mourvedre "Sun Worshipper" Estate - Paso Robles

Winemakers Notes: "Debut vintage of our Estate Mourvèdre blend.  Mourvèdre is a variety we’ve wanted to highlight for years and we are thrilled with the result.  Our latest ripening variety, this grape spends most of its time in the background as one of the three classes components of our GSM blend.  After years of farming and blending Mourvèdre, Bob determined that it deserved its own wine because Alta Colina Vineyard is an ideal site to ripen it.  Unlike most other Rhône-centric sites, our altitude and sun exposure helps this grape achieve true ripeness and boy is it good!"


Robert Parker 93+ Points: "The 2013 Sun Worshipper Estate is a new wine from this estate that's made from a Mourvedre-dominated blend including 27% Grenache and 19% Syrah. Aged in varying levels of new oak (the Grenache see no oak), this sexy, layered and beautifully balanced 2013 offers lots of kirsch and blackberry fruits, dried underbrush, cured meats and licorice in its savory, yet still ripe and textured personality. Give it a year or so to let the tannin integrate, and enjoy bottles through 2023."
