2012 Roussanne $20.00
This wine is very floral with further aromas of apricots and lemons and just a bit of nuttiness. It's a very  refreshing wine with notable body and finesse.

A pretty smelling wine of spring blossoms and lots of fruit like pear and melon rounded out with creamy orangesicle. In the mouth  the wine has balanced crisp acidity.

Order Here


2012 Grenache Blanc Sold Out
Floral aromatics with lovely mandarin orange and lemon/lime are highlighted with a bit of anise. The wine is quite light in the mouth…yes, this is your Grandmother's white wine.

 


2012 El Dorado Grenache Rosé $20.00
Cherries, strawberries, spring blossoms and citrus rind round out the aromas in this pretty colored Rosé.  In the mouth you may be pleasantly surprised at how deep the wine is with balanced acidity and a very long, creamy finish.

2011 El Dorado Grenache Noir $22.00
A pretty wine with earthy strawberry and cherry fruit. Floral qualities and a certain sweetart aroma finds a big finish from such an otherwise light wine.

Order Here


2012 El Dorado Counoise (sold out)
This vintage is light and pretty with strawberry fruit and aromatics of roses and a hint of oregano. In the mouth the wine is luscious, smooth and mouth filling.

 


2011 El Dorado Petit Patriarche $22.00
(55% Grenache, 27% Counoise, 12% Syrah, 6% Mourvedre)
Aromatics of cherries, blackberries and dried fruit are met with lots of spices like black pepper, bay, sage, oregano and lavender.  The wine has mild tannins, balanced acidity and a nice long creamy finish.

Order Here


2010 El Dorado Mourvedre Classique $20.00
This wine shows pretty aromatics of cherries, and to a lesser degree strawberries, with floral highlights of roses and lavender.  Don't get me wrong. There is a trace of earthiness (Mourvedre's hallmark) that tells you that this is indeed the real thing.  In the mouth you'll taste berries and experience a very long finish with nice acidity and medium tannins.

Order Here


2012 El Dorado Mourvedre Estate $25.00
This is Mourvedre. Earthy and meaty, leaning toward mushroomy umami.  This wine has tons of fruit too.  Backberry and blueberry aromatics are complimented by a long, fruity, slightly creamy finish.

Order Here


2012 El Dorado Mourvedre-Syrah $25.00
Ooh! First off the bat…. Sage….Yum! Further aromatics of sweet dried cherries and roses are met by a round mouthfeel, nice acid and a Syrah-like structure.

2011 El Dorado Fenaughty Syrah, Old Vines Sold Out
The second oldest syrah vineyard in the county produces a wine with beautiful aromas of strawberries and raspberries that are held up with anise, fennel, and lavender. It's slightly smoky with nice acidity and soft tannins.

 


2009 El Dorado Wylie-Fenaughty Syrah $25.00
Dark, dark ripe blackberries make up the fruit with a bit of cherry and tons of smokiness playing with licorice and stone. Ripe dark fruit is met in the mouth with medium tannins.

Order Here


2011 El Dorado Patriarche $30.00          
(52% Mourvedre, 36% Syrah, 7% Grenache Noir, 5% Counoise)
Aromas of blackberries and a little bit of cherry and strawberry for the fruit while toasted marshmallows, bayleaves and coffee add interest (perfect camping wine?). The wine is perfectly balanced in the mouth.

Order Here


2009 El Dorado Hill Top Syrah $20.00
This wine is made from estate fruit from a variety of exposures on the vineyard across from the tasting room.  You may notice a bit of oak in this wine which we don't typically use but we thought it would be good on this rich Syrah.  It has fruity aromatics of grapes but what really comes through is meaty barbeque sauce and soy sauce with underlying dried chiles.  In the mouth the wine has a long fruit driven finish with medium tannins.

Order Here


2010 El Dorado East Slope Syrah  Sold Out 
This vintage has soft aromas of cherries, sage, earthy mushrooms and floral highlights which are followed by bright acidity, medium tannins and a long finish.

Order Here


2010 El Dorado Petite Sirah $25.00        
A super dark color fills your glass with ripe fig, cherry and blackberry fruit, bay leaves and black pepper. Bright acidity fills your mouth with nice tannins and a refreshing finish.

Order Here


2009 El Dorado Late Harvest Roussanne $25.00           375ml
A floral perfume dominates this wine while dried apricots, dried grass and nuttiness add to the aromatics. It has a big sweet mouthfeel with nicely balanced acidity.

Order Here


El Dorado Mourvedre/Syrah Dessert Wine $20.00            375ml
Aromatics of chocolate peanut brittle, ripe cherries and blackberries whipped up with sprinkles of flower and spice. In the mouth the wine is sweet with a smooth creaminess and surprising tannins will last until midnight.
