Our Wine Club Members already know about our first round of new releases for 2016, they received a notice weeks before anyone else! That's one of the many benefits of the wine club. For non club members, you can try out these two fantastic wines with a two for one wine tasting Monday - Thursday! Click here to get the coupon. Here are our first two new releases:
Muscato di Amore is a very popular wine that was produced only once at Mount Palomar nine years ago. The 2014 vintage of this blend of Muscat varietals is scented with pear, lychee, white peach and honey suckle. The feel in the mouth is velvety. Our Muscato di Amore has bright tastes of star fruit, lychee, and peach with a touch of honey. This wine pairs well with poultry, pork and white fish. You can buy it online at: http://www.mountpalomarwinery.com/product/2014-Muscato-di-Amore
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon has rich scents of currants, plum and hot chocolate balanced with the varietals signature character of subdued sweet pepper. The wine is medium bodied and full in the mouth with a smooth finish. The tastes are of plum, sweet nutmeg complimented by light oak elements. This wine pairs well with rich red meat dishes. You can buy it online at: http://www.mountpalomarwinery.com/product/2011-Cabernet-Sauvignon

In 2015 Mount Palomar Winery won 14 medals with 10 different wines in wine competitions. In fact, we won a medal in every single contest that we entered. This year, we plan on being just as successful, and we've already started winning - here are the first five medals that Mount Palomar Winery won in 2016:
2013 Castelletto Dolcetto: This is Mount Palomar Winery's first release of Dolcetto wine, and a bronze medal at the San Francisco Chronicle competition give it it's third win, including another bronze at the Toast of the Coast Wine Competition and a silver at the Riverside International Wine Competition. Dolcetto is a wonderfully deep varietal from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, and has a bright taste with currants and blackberry balanced by a firm tannin structure.
2014 Castelletto Cortese (Unreleased): Our 2014 Castelletto Cortese also picked up a bronze in the contest, making it a great follow up for our award winning 2013 Cortese. The 2014 Castelletto Cortese will be released later this year, for now we're still pouring our 2013 in the tasting room.
2014 Mount Palomar Sangiovese Rose (Unreleased) - the last of our bronze medals, our 2014 Sangiovese is a follow up to our top winner last year - 2013 Sangiovese Rose. It picked up three medals in wine competitions last year, and we're still pouring it in the tasting room. With a velvety mouth feel, it has tastes of rose, tangerine, apple, and buttered pear, and you can buy it online by clicking here now. The 2014 Sangiovese Rose will be released later this year.
Mount Palomar Limited Reserve Port - A serious fan favorite, Mount Palomar Port took a silver medal at the competition. Made using time-honored techniques, this Port is a blend of vintages that averaged about 6 years in the barrel. The length of time in barrel suggests that this Port should have a tawny nose, but it is in fact more reminiscent of a ruby Port.
Mount Palomar Solera Cream Sherry - The cream of the crop, our Solera Cream Sherry brought home the gold, proving once again that our outdoor Solera (the last one in the country, and possibly the last in the U.S.) produces a superior dessert wine. Mount Palomar Winery has been producing Solera Cream Sherry since 1978, using the traditional Palomino grape and patient aging of at least five years under the sun to create rich hazelnut and caramel flavors and a long, smooth finish. Customers have called our Sherry liquid gold, and the best Sherry they've ever tasted, and only ever regret not buying more.
