The 2011 Mataro is not a wine to be taken light heartedly as it carries itself in a larger-than-life personality. Expect huge spice cake and aged leather aromas upon the nose. Indulge in sweet black plums, blackberry and fresh blueberries all throughout the palate. With a velvety mouth feel and sustained finish, this is a perfect wine to snuggle up to the fireplace and get warm during winter.

The Vineyard

Mataro (also known as Mouvedre) is grown in the Gonsalves’ vineyards in the eastern hills of Contra Costa and hand picked at 28 brix to hone in on mature and deeper flavor development on the vine. With vines dating back over 90 plus years, the mature vines produce  low yields that are focused and concentrated in their flavors.

The Vintage

The 2011 Vintage was challenging for vintners with rains coming at inconvenient times and a growing season that yielded one of the smallest crops in years. The grapes that did make it in 2011 are good but there is not much out there, so buy up the 2011 wines because they will go quick!
