Paso Robles AVA, San Luis Obispo County, CA
Delicious now, but will age gracefully for up to 10 years.10 Years
The source for our Gesture Mourvèdre is the J. Lohr Gean Vineyard, which is the westernmost vineyard in the entire Paso Robles AVA. This planting, located in the Adelaida District sub-AVA, was established in 2009 and now produces wines of the balance and intensity required for our members’ limited release Gesture program. The farming plan here brings the Mourvèdre vines to just one cluster per shoot prior to veraison to intensify flavor; this large-clustered red Rhone variety requires trimming the “wings” and “shoulders” off the clusters as well, to further help focus the fruit character. Aged sixteen months in 3-year-old, tight grain French oak puncheons. Only 255 cases produced. Certified California Sustainable.
