Wine from MCV Wines

MCV Wines opened its doors in 2011 with the purchase of four and a half tons of some of the highest quality Petite Sirah to be found in the Paso Robles AVA. Matt Villard eagerly jumped on the opportunity for these grapes and swiftly discovered an incredible wine making facility where he could in turn create his wines. Before harvest was over he found three more tons of Petite Sirah as well as some Grenache and Syrah totalling around 10 tons for 2011. Matt Villard is happy to say that they are still happily working with both the same original Petite Sirah vineyard and wine making facility.

Here at MCV, they focus on unique and interesting blends that revolve around Petite Sirah. This wonderfully dark and rich grape is smooth, elegant and delicious yet, bold, powerful and age-able. It has the unique ability to be made in various styles that can be used to create multiple wines from the same grapes. Their first two production years yielded around 500 cases each vintage. However, 2013 saw a small increase due to incorporating new grape varietals into the program and a couple new blends.

MCV 1105 Red 2018

MCV 1105 Red  is made from Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache, Tannat, Petit Verdot, Mourvedre & Zinfandel.

This is a fantastic everyday wine. It pairs with a wide variety of foods and is great all by itself.

Aromas of blackberry, vanilla, white pepper, granite, rainier cherry and mocha. Flavors of cherry cola, dark chocolate, graphite, black coffee and pink peppercorn.

Grapes were processed on the same day they arrived at the winery. Sorting table juice was discarded. Post de-stemmer juice was used for the Rosé. Lots were fermented in 2 ton macrobins. A variety of yeasts were used, including some wild fermentations. Lots were cold soaked between 3 -7 days. Fermentation took an average of 12 days. Some lots received extended maceration. Some lots were pressed directly into barrel and some into tank to settle. High press was separated out. The wine was aged in oak barrels for 15 months.


Pairing: Grilled New York with sautéed mushrooms. Stuffed portabella mushrooms. Pasta Carbonara. Pork chops coated with coffee and rosemary. Herb crusted lamb chops.

Review:

"Almost opaque in the glass, this blend of 61% Petite Sirah, 15% Tannat, 9% Syrah, 8% Grenache, 6% Petite Verdot and 1% Viognier offers deep violet and cassis aromas, but remains reserved. Elderberry and lavender flavors are spiced by cracked pepper on the palate. - MATT KETTMANN"

MCV ALV Sauvignon Blanc 2020

MCV ALV Sauvignon Blanc is made from 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc.

Aromas of guava, lime, wet Stone and citrus blossom. Flavors of passion fruit, stone fruit, crushed stone and keyur lime.This is a bigger, rounder style Sauvignon Blanc that maintains good acidity. Named after the winemaker’s sister, this wine is perfect for drinking now.


Review:

"This is a refreshing counterpoint to this winery's richer reds. Quite light in the glass, persistent aromas of lime, makrut lime leaf, lemongrass and a hint of guava show on the nose, which also offers a rainy cement minerality. The grippy sip frames ripe but fresh flavors of stone fruit and passionfruit. - MATT KETTMANN"

Review:

"Very dark in the glass, this bottling by Matt Villard pops on the nose with blackberry sorbet, wet slate, seared oak and a hint of mint. Earth and fruit converge on the palate, offering berries, sagebrush and a touch of smoke. It's a hearty yet balanced glass of wine. MATT KETTMANN"
