The Mourvedre is a late ripening red grape variety that is widely planted along the French and Spanish coasts of the Mediterranean Sea.  It is used in the Rhone river valley of France in blends of Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape.  Mourvèdre performs well in warmer growing areas and well drained (even stony) soils.  Its wines are medium bodied, deeply colored and full of fruit (cherry and berries).  It can improve for up to 10 years when stored properly.
