Skinner El Dorado Mourvedre 2019

The Skinner family has a fractured history in winemaking. One that speaks to the ups and downs of the American wine scene. Their great great great grandfather, James Skinner, established one of the first wineries in the country in 1861. After rediscovering their family history, the present-day family set up shop in the same site and began producing California wines that pay homage to the past with sustainable farming and  a minimal intervention approach.

When you pour this 100% Mourvèdre, you’ll be greeted by aromas of fresh baked strawberry pie. Underneath all that rich cooked fruit, you’ll find notes of pine and cedar needles. On the palate, after a wave of red fruit, you’ll get a hint of red bell pepper and plummy fruit at the finish. With a firm roundness and fine tannins, this is an excellent grilling wine.
