Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula is proud to release a new red blend, the winner of our 2016 Wine Blending Competition, Miscela Buona:
This unexpected red blend is made up of 40% Sangiovese, 30% Syrah, 20% Zinfandel, and 10% Viognier. Our winemaker selected it as the best blend in our Annual Club Member's blending competition, beating out some very tough competition mixed by other members. According to winemaker James Rutherford "...The team created a new wine that is very fragrant, fruit forward, and earthy. The scents are heavy with sweet spice and floral notes of lily and carnation. The taste is of Boysenberry, dark fruit and cocoa balanced against black pepper and orange bitters. This wine is round and full in the mouth. It is a great pairing for red meat and spicy Mexican dishes."
This new release is a wine club exclusive, taking the place of our 2011 Castelletto Trovato on the exlusive menu and making that wine open to the general public.

Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affects 1 in 200 people. They are painful, medically incurable diseases that attack the digestive system. Crohn's disease may attack anywhere along the digestive tract, while ulcerative colitis inflames only the large intestine (colon). Symptoms may include abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, fever and weight loss. Many patients require numerous hospitalizations and surgery. Most people develop the diseases between the ages of 15 and 35; however the incidence is increasing in children.
Take Steps is the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America’s national walk program. These walks raise funds for mission critical research and patient support programs, and help increase awareness of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, two painful and unpredictable digestive diseases. Our walks are family-friendly festivals held in more than 120 communities across the country with activities for everyone including games, music, and great food. Funds raised through Take Steps will help transform the lives of those impacted by these diseases, and support CCFA’s critical research, education, and patient support programs. Walk with us today: get started at www.cctakesteps.org/temecula or contact Dawn Redo Take Steps Walk Manager at 619.497.1300 or firstname.lastname@example.org
