Winemaker's Select Club

2 Bottles of 2017 Reserve Malbec

Deep violet in color, our 2017 Reserve Malbec opens with an inviting perfume of dried cherry, fennel, and cedar before delving into a darker core of ripe black plum and dark roasted coffee beans. Toasted oak frames the present yet forgiving tannins riding across an extended finish.
Our 2017 Reserve Malbec is a blend of three Malbec vineyards, the first two are planted in the “reserve” hill country west of the valley floor.  The first is our well known Waxman vineyard in La Cresta, the second is a small hillside vineyard in De Luz, and finally a splash of Elk Grove Malbec, known for its intesne dark fruit and color. This vintage was finished with a small percentage of Kriel Cabernet Sauvignon to add more body and tannin structure.   
Pair with grilled premium cuts of beef, osso bucco, braised short ribs

Wines:

2017 Domestique -

Ease into the slipstream with our Domestique as this classic Rhone-style blend shows the best of each varietal. Aromas of ripe currant lead the pack, racing into a lush dark fruit core, followed closely by earthy notes, stretching into a long spicy finish. Pair with Cassoulet, Rotisserie chicken, Rosemary lamb chops.

Our 2017 Domestique is decidedly more elegant and nuanced than past vintages, with a higher percentage of Grenache, and French oak barrels, allowing the taster to appreciate the complexity of layers, without overpowering body and tannins

2018 Vermentino - Aromas of pineapple and lime enchant the senses before pink grapefruit and almond enrich the palate, with a touch of minerality completing the picture on this hand crafted, stylish Italian varietal.

Our 2018 Vermentino is a wonderful example of how well this Italian variety does in Temecula, with a nice balance of crisp, refreshing acidity, and light fruit aromas. This vintage was blended with 25% Albariño to further accentuate the floral, honey notes, and stone fruit, giving this wine a little more complexity.


Amour De L'Orange - Champagne with a fun orange twist
