2008 L'Intruse Mourvèdre
Santa Barbara County
2008 L'Intruse 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 and White Hawk Vineyards is a big wine with a long, sustained finish. The intruder is here to stay.
