Larry Schaffer specializes in small lot, hand crafted wines from vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County. Mourvedre is a black-skinned variety that has been grown in vineyards all around the western Mediterranean for centuries typically used for adding color and depth to blends. Thought to have originated in Spain, it is now grown extensively throughout the Iberian Peninsula, southern France, California and South Australia. It has small, thick-skinned berries – the textbook combination for making wines with intense color and high tannin levels. In fact, it is the variety's mouth-drying tannins that earned it the French nickname Etrangle-Chien (the dog strangler).
