Vineyard Update
2016/2017 season is starting out with welcomed rainy weather.  We are hopeful for a better season, and our replants are doing well.  The cold weather in December also put our vines to sleep a bit early, so we can start pruning and getting our vineyards in shape before spring.  Happy New Year! We wish everyone a prosperous 2017!

DeRose-bottle

DeRose Wine Club Winter 2017
2014 Continental Cabernet-
($25.00/btl. /$20.00 Wine Club)
This rare and unique blend of 95% Cabernet Pfeffer, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of white pepper, cranberries and pomegranate.  Soft round tannins and great acidity make this wine very food friendly especially with pork, chicken, and lean cuts of beef.  Drink after decanting, or with up to 6-8 years of additional cellaring.

2013 Old Vine Syrah-
($37.50/30.00 wine club)
One of our most limited wines, only 100 cases of this wine club exclusive wine were produced.  Aromas of ripe blueberries, violets and spice burst from the glass.  This full bodied, inky black wine has robust tannins that linger on the palate.  Enjoy with lamb, barbequed ribs and brisket.  Drink now or cellar an additional 3-4 years.

Import Wine Club Winter 2017
2014 Alchemy Carmenere-
* Our signature wine from Chile*
($25.00/btl. /$20.00 Wine Club)
Hand-destemmed grapes of exceptionally ripe Carmenere result in a soft, silky wine with aromas of dark red fruit and spice.  Excellent wine with barbeque, red sauces and rich cheeses.  Drink now through 2020.

2012 Yotuel Roble
($22/btl./ $17.60 Wine Club)
This 100% Tempranillo is grown in the Ribera Del Duero; a very rocky and arid locale, and is considered to be one Spain’s premier wine growing regions. It’s fruity bouquet of dried cranberries, cherries and sage is complemented by nice acidity making this an ideal food-wine. Enjoy with charcuterie, veal, filet mignon and red sauces.
