Description: Aaron and Cara Mockrish moved to North Yuba and planned to start a farm, until they tasted a bottle of Clos Saron's Black Pearl. They sought out Gideon, learned from him, and eventually managed to lease the oldest parcels of the Renaissance vineyard, leading to the creation of Frenchtown Farms. This Mourvèdre-based blend comes from a few parcels around El Dorado and is foot-stomped before being aged in old oak for ten months.
