2012 Murrieta’s Well ‘The Spur,’ Livermore Valley

The Livermore Valley is one of California’s most history-steeped winegrowing regions. Murrieta’s Well dates back to the 1880s, has had its ups and downs through the years, but has been crafting sublime blends from estate-grown grapes for the past quarter-century. The red blend is known as “The Spur,” and combines Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot, aged in a mix of American, French and Eastern European oak barrels. The 2012 vintage melds the fruit and oak flavors beautifully, displaying blueberry, baking spice, cherry and dark chocolate. Perfect for pairing with a grilled steak.
