Where to Buy:
The Withers Winery

69% Mourvedre, 31% Syrah, from El Dorado County vineyards in the Sierra Foothills (1800-2800 feet elevation, granite & volcanic-heavy soils.) This has a fruity, ripe, juicy berry character, complemented by the two grapes’ natural spicy/earthy character. The spice: black pepper, anise, cinnamon stick. Earth comes across as black olive and forest floor. Medium bodied, soft tannins, medium acidity. This is ready to enjoy anytime and goes particularly well with pork and stronger fish dishes as well as dishes with mushrooms, olives and lots of herbs.

Winegrowing notes from The Withers:
The Withers In Hand was fermented with 30% whole clusters and after a cold soak, aged for 18 months in 100% neutral oak barrels ranging in age from 10-20 years. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered and only racked once directly preceding bottling.
