La Clarine Farm - Mourvèdre Cedarville 2018David Bowler Wines
Winemaker Hank Beckmeyer quit his band Half Japanese mid-tour while in Europe after meeting his future wife Caroline, and after countless daydreaming trips to their favorite vineyards in the south of France, decided to set up their own shop in the Sierra Foothills back in the US.
We don't usually quote the producers themselves (nor are they quoted much), but Hank nails it about their Mourvèdre: "The earth here speaks. Initially, a medium-light body which gains volume on the palate. Finishes with more citrus and peppery notes. Very long with very fine tannins."
Let the earth speak, Hank. Let the earth speak.
