Spanish Corral Red

Spanish Corral Red is 80% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre all from Gold Blossom Vineyard. The grapes were hand picked and fermented in small lots which were punched down three times a day for maximum color and flavor extraction. After pressing, the wine was moved to stainless steel tanks to start malolactic fermentation and to remove suspended solids in the wine. The wine was than transferred to French and Hungarian oak barrels where it aged for 18 months before bottling.

It is a Cotes du Rhone style red with red raspberry and red cherry flavors, nice acidity and mild tannins. Alcohol is 13.9%. It goes well with salmon, pork and hamburgers.

Grapes:  80% Syrah 20% Mourvedre       300 cases produced.
Price:  Retail: $15/bottle (750 ml)    $162/case (with case discount)

2006 Oui © Rosé

Our 2006 Oui is a departure from our usual blend of Rhône reds. This year it is a dry rosé made from fully ripe 100% Grenache grapes. It's a delicate salmon-pink in color, with vibrant strawberry and plum flavors, set off by a bit of spice (is it ginger?) in the nose. Sufficiently complex and elegant in flavor and style to impress rosé skeptics, a simple pleasure for the rest of us.
Appellation:  Placer County.

Grapes:  Grenache 100%                  79 cases produced
Price:   Retail: $14/bottle (750 ml)       $151.20/case (with case discount)
