Tasting Notes

Winery notes: Ron Mansfield farms this vineyard in the Apple Hill region of El Dorado, sitting at 3000ft elevation with cooler nighttime temperatures to preserve acidity. The vines are head trained on a vertical cordon and dry farmed even in the warmest of years. Foot tread and fermented 100% whole cluster this is a wine that is bottled early to be enjoyed during the Fall months. Aromatics of Asian plum sauce with hints of dried strawberry in the background lead to a palate of bright red fruit and mouthwatering acidity.

    Winemaker Brian Jessen immediately saw the potential in the Sierra Foothills with its cooler climate, high elevation sites & the unique volcanic, decomposing granitic soils the area had to offer. An ultimate match for crafting richly flavorful, intricately structured terroir driven wines from Rhone varieties. Irene's Mouvedre is a refreshing, bright expression of the variety that can be enjoyed now- with notes of crunchy red plums, strawberries, mountain herbs, touches of anise, and stony minerality that will leave your mouth watering for more.
