Mourvèdre is also known as Monastrell.
This Mourvèdre base blend is a dark ruby that leans toward purple. The nose will greet you with plum, blueberries and violets. You'll note that the wine is well balanced and has great structure. The finish is where the cherries show up with the blueberries you experienced on the nose.
