At ACME Fine Wines our mission is simple: share the undiscovered wine gems of the world with those who will appreciate them most. As you know, we focus mainly on being a launchpad for debut projects from the best and brightest winemakers and vineyards around. More often than not, the small-production family-owned brands that we take under our wing require a little help to get the exposure required to prosper in this burgeoning industry. Desire Lines Wine Co. is one such brand. We first fell in love with these wines after sampling a single-vineyard Syrah last year which was subsequently featured in this club. It was no surprise when the re-order emails started flowing in and eventually the wine was completely sold out. Being able to offer such tremendous support does not go unnoticed, and as soon as Desire Lines released their newest wine, we were the first to know! 

Desire Lines Wine Co. is the passion project from husband-and-wife team Cody and Emily Rasmussen, Iowa natives and high school sweethearts. The duo moved to Sonoma County in 2011 and have since both built exciting careers. Cody is the Associate Winemaker at Bedrock Wine Co. (2020 Winery of the Year), a winery that focuses on heritage vineyards and age-worthy wines. Emily runs a communications consulting business where she collaborates on digital marketing, public relations, and communications for several wineries in Napa and Sonoma. Together, they started Desire Lines in 2017 with the hope of making vibrant and delicious wines from truly great vineyards in their adopted home – the Golden State. Desire lines, which can be called other names depending on what part of the world you are from - social trails, cow paths, and pirate paths just to name a few - are unofficial routes that are formed over time as people reject the designated paths in favor of a route of their own design. This is the ethos in which the Rasmussen Family have forged their lives and this brand. 

The 2019 Mourvedre is the newest addition to the Desire Lines portfolio. Fully sourced from Bedrock's heritage vineyard, this is a wine that is very close to Emily and Cody's heart. The perk of being Bedrock's associate winemaker are many, but maybe none as great as getting access to some of Bedrock's pristine fruit. Spicy and rich with black fruit and notes of tobacco and tar, this is a Mourvedre that makes a nod to the classic style from Bandol while staying true to its California fruits and presenting plenty of racy acidity. With no certainty that this wine will be made in subsequent vintages, we suggest that you don't miss out on this beauty!
