    Mourvedre is such a mysterious varietal and this wine perfectly encapsulates its typically deep, brooding, dark fruit with gamey, savory earthy tones that are present in spades. The fruit (all of which was fermented whole cluster) is sourced from Villa Creek's organic home estate Luna Matta vineyard as well as the world famous James Berry and neighboring Denner vineyards. The wine is saturated and powerful with lashings of plummy, briary, dark fruit, smoke, cured meat and underbrush. Rich and full bodied but also possessing formidable tannin structure that will ensure a long life. Compelling wine.

    The ever mysterious "Damas Noir" Villa Creek is crafted from 100% Mourvedre from Certified Organic Luna Matta vineyard in Paso Robles, in the heart of Peachy Canyon. The vineyards Southern facing aspect creates richness and depth in the fruit, and the marl and limestone rich soil adds excellent minerality. The nose opens with enticing, but subtle, licorice notes, subtle animalic musk, and plum leaf, swirling in a kind of exotic potpourri. The medium bodied palate is incredibly condensed and richly fruited, but freshened by hints of herbaceous spice and lifted acidity. A taut, tightly knit tannin structure adds to the intrigue of this wine, leaving a trail of subtle cocoa powder in It's wake.
