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 Spring 2017
2014 Old Vine Zinfandel-
($35.00/btl. /$28.00 Wine Club)
A small but intense vintage of Zinfandel from our 110 year old vineyard.  This limited vintage explodes with aromas of blackberry and raspberry, with just a hint of toasted oak.  Intense mouth-feel with dark fruit and vanilla on the palate, followed by a long finish. This wine is drinkable now, but will age gracefully for an additional 6-8 years.  Great with grilled meats, pasta, roasts, and even chocolate!

Negrette/Cabernet Pfeffer
($25.00/btl. /$20.00 Wine Club)
Our first bottling of this unique blend of our two most rare varietals, we nicknamed it “Black Pepper”.  We have just enough cases of this wine for our wine club members, so we wanted to make sure all of our members had the opportunity to receive this special blend.  Inky black color and aromas of ripe plums come from the Negrette, complemented by Cabernet Pfeffer’s acidity and peppery aromas make for a fruit-forward wine.  Pair with lamb, wild game, and strong cheeses (especially goat cheeses).  Enjoy now through 2020.

Import Wine Club Spring 2017
2014 Parrone Cabernet Sauvignon
($14.00/btl. /$11.20 Wine Club)
A new vintage from our winery in Chile, where we continue to source new and better vineyards to maintain this wine’s quality and excellent pricing.  Try our latest vintage with its deep color, dark red fruit, and soft mouth-feel.  Stock up as it is going fast, and still has several more years of aging potential.

2011 Campofiorito Ripasso
($30/btl./ $24 Wine Club)
Amarone’s little brother, this Italian red from Veneto is made from dried Corvina Veronese grapes.  Big and bold with lush tannins and a mouth-feel that will satisfy any Zinfandel lover’s palate!  It is suitable for heavy red sauces, grilled or roasted meats, and also great to sip and enjoy all on its own.  Wines from this region will easily age for a decade or more.
