Mission Briefing

Codename:

Cali Monastrell

Mourvedre, one of the most expensive grape varietals of southern France, thrives in Amador County. Today’s fun and approachable Mourvedre comes to us by way of a collaboration between professional golfer Chi Chi Rodriguez and Robledo Family Winery.

Chi Chi’s Dinner and a Mourvedre is a budget-friendly wine that is a delightful companion for a wide variety of food pairings. We’ll enjoy our sample bottles over the July 4th weekend with BBQ chicken and spareribs. Classic Spanish fare would also be a great choice.

A blend of 94% Mourvedre and 6% Nebbiolo, this Chipatchi Vineyard (so named for Chi Chi and his wife, Pat) blend is a delightful and light-hearted wine that won’t land you in a sand trap!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Lovely and translucent with a color that reminds us of fresh cherry juice.

Smell:

Black cherry, subtle blackberry, blueberry, black tea, dried leather, and black currant. Cedar, pine, oak and toast round out the nose.

Taste:

Rich and gamey, with dark stewed fruit of black plum and blackberry, along with leather, cedar and a hint of savory fresh herbs.

Finish:

Long and dark with leather and dark mineral that is supported throughout the palate, even as a bracing dryness spreads to the far corners of the mouth.

Pairing:

Enjoy this intriguing wine with a Spanish chorizo and potato casserole or a classic seafood Paella.
