Murrieta's Well The Spur 2019
The Spur 2013 is crafted from blending the classic Bordeaux varietals with a Petite Sirah foundation and offers a distinctively California expression. Each varietal is farmed, harvested, and handcrafted individually to achieve their greatest expression. Beautiful fruit aromas of black cherry and blueberry are highlighted by subtle notes of sweet oak and earthy spice.
Murrieta's Well is a small wine estate in the Livermore Valley with a rich history that reaches back to the Gold Rush era of California. In 1990, Philip Wente, in a joint effort with winemaker Sergio Traverso, brought the historic winery back to life with the objective of producing "old world" style field blends from the unique combination of original plantings that thrived in the gravelly soils of the estate. They named it for the artesian well where the legendary Joaquin Murrieta and his band of desperados watered their horses.
