2015 was a good year for Mount Palomar Winery. We had so many beautiful weddings, shipped so many delicious bottles of wine, and won 14 wine medals in wine competitions - in fact, we received a medal in every contest we entered. November was the last month that we sent a wine club shipment for 2015. Now that we’re getting ready for our first shipment in January 2016, we thought that we’d take the time to look back over our last shipment. Here are the wines we sent to members in November:
2013 Cinsaut Blush - Wine Club Exclusive and a New Release! Our 2013 Cinsaut Blush is a continued tradition of creating fine rose wines at Mount Palomar. Our Blush is slightly sweet, well balanced with natural fruit acids, and is easy a smooth, easy to drink wine.
2013 Dry Riesling – Award Winning Wine Club Exclusive! For the new 2013 Dry Riesling we chose to update and change the style of this wine to have no residual sweetness and include barrel aging. These efforts were rewarded by the wine being medaled just prior to release.

2014 Nouveau – Wine Club Exclusive and a New Release! Nouveaus, or Italian Novellos, represent the first wines to be released of a vintage. Made famous by the French Beaujolais, Nouveau wines are fermented differently than other red wines. These wines have the character of being lighter and brighter and emphasize the fruit elements. Nouveaus are not intended for extended aging so enjoy them early.
Bacchanova - Wine Club Exclusive and a New Release! At our 2015 Wine Club Blending Competition, this wine was deemed the best blend. This wine could easily fit into the Super Tuscan category. The wine has a wonderful and complex fragrance of cherry and strawberry with touches of rosemary and almond.
If you love red wine, and you'd like to receive regular shipments of Mount Palomar Winery's reds, you can join the wine club online here - http://bit.ly/mpwineclub Just select Estate Club red for four bottles every other month, or Villa Club red to receive two. If you love both red and white wines and want to receive a mixed shipment, choose Villa or Estate club mixed. Sign up by January 17th to receive the next shipment!
Mont Noir – 2 Bottles! Our Mount Noir is bottled at a smaller size than most of our wine bottles, so in order to avoid shortchanging any of our wine club members; we included two bottles of Mont Noir for Villa Club shipments and four bottles Estate club members. Dark with smoky scents of white pepper, mandarin orange and soft gardenia, Mont Noir feels thick in the mouth. Italian Plum and black cherry are prominent with hints of hazelnut and zesty Citroen. This is a dessert wine and great to sip and savor, but pairs well with soft cheeses, powdered pasties and chocolate.
Brut Sparkling Wine – Our Brut sparkling wine is a classic sparkling wine with a smooth texture, a light sweetness, and a refreshing, crisp finish. This wine is perfect for all toasts, celebrations, and special occasions.
