2005 L'Intruse Mourvèdre

Santa Barbara County

Our 2005 L'Intruse (The Intruder) Mourvèdre wine appears subtle and unobtrusive at first sip but quickly proves itself worthy of your attention. This blend of Mourvèdre and Grenache from the Alta Mesa Vineyard with a bit of Syrah from the Thompson Vineyard and White Hawk Vineyard exhibits notes of blueberry, blackberry and white flower on the nose. In the mouth it shows concentrated black fruits, truffles on the palette and a long, sustained finish. The intruder is here to stay. Enjoy this wine with a variety of foods, both heavy red meats and those with heavy sauces for the next 5-7 years.
