January is the first month of the year where we send a new wine club shipment, here's what our incredible winemaker selected for our members to help start the year off right:
2014 Muscato Di Amore - New release! 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.
Shorty's Bistro White – Award winning wine! In 2014, Shorty's white won a silver medal at the San Diego International Wine Competition. This is a definite crowd pleaser that is fresh, bright and easy to drink. Shorty’s is fragrant with pineapple, peach and honeysuckle. Serve chilled and enjoy tropical tastes of pineapple, lemon, pear and canary melon. Perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day and pairs well with seafood or poultry dishes.
2011 Cabernet Sauvignon – A new release and a wine club exclusive! 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. Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine club exclusive
2010 Sangiovese - Award winning wine! This wine won a Bronze medal at the Toast of the Coast Wine Competition! Mount Palomar Winery has a long tradition of producing Sangiovese, having been the first grower in the Temecula Valley of this vine. The 2010 Sangiovese is richly scented with lilac and black currants. The wine has a smooth velvety feel in the mouth. The tastes are of plum with touches of strawberry complimented by hints of clove and nutmeg. This wine pairs nicely with red meats, BBQ, pastas with red sauces.

2014 Muscato Di Amore - If you read the white wine club description this wine should sound familiar - it was included in both shipments in January. This wine is sweet enough to go in a sweet club shipment, but so smooth and balanced you could drink it everyday.
2013 Sangiovese Rosé - Sold out! Our award winning Rosé sold out just last month! Our wine club members received some of the last bottles, plus a warning when the bottles were low so they had a chance to order before it was gone.
