    The Withers 'Ruben' 2016

    • All fruit harvested within El Dorado county where sites range from 1,700-2,400 foot elevations, and feature granitic, volcanic loam soils, and ancient calderas. Berries tend to be small from these sites, with concentrated, yet elegant flavors.

      Floral, spicy aromas and bold well-articulated flavors accompany a firm, moderately tannic texture in this oaky but well-balanced Mourvèdre-based wine. It has a tangy nervy mouthfeel, plenty of baking-spice and cedar nuances and a good core of red and black cherry.

      83% Mourvedre, 9% Syrah, and 8% Grenache
