Our 2019 Cavern Select Mourvèdre has notes of blackberries, leather, and dried herbs.


Flavors of plum, earth, and spice on the full-bodied mid-palate with fine grained tannins and a lingering finish.

Growing Conditions

The 2019 vintage began with a cool start. We saw above average rainfall in Paso Robles helping to cleanse soils. The cool weather protracted bud break and bloom delaying our growing season. A heat wave in late July helped to accelerate our delayed season with harvest starting about 7 days late at the end of August. The weather became more seasonal until several frost events in late September and October created challenges for low elevation areas. Luckily, we saw very little frost damage in our vineyards this season. Overall yield in the vineyard is lower than average. While short and somewhat sporadic, vintage 2019 is showing to be rich in flavor and phenolically dense.
Sales Notes:


The Mourvèdre in this blend is predominately from El Pomar District. Aged 24 months in barrel and an additional 6 months in bottle, this wine shows beautiful dried and preserved fruit flavors.
