Palumbo Family Vineyards Palumbo Wines 2013 Grenache
2013 Grenache (Temecula)
"This is an expertly balanced wine from Temecula, showcasing region's potential for Grenache. Rosewater, cherry juice and cherry blossom aromas are lifted by herbal touches of marjoram and crushed peppercorn. Fennel, thyme and oregano flavors kick off the palate, where strong acidity carries raspberry and red berry flavors into a complex and elegant finish. Editor's Choice."

2014 Grenache Blanc (Temecula)
One of the better whites to come from the South Coast, this wine, enhanced by 6% Viognier, shows a chalky nose decorated by light peach, squeezed Meyer-lemon peel and yellow flower aromas. The palate is texturally grippy and tense, with flavors of yellow pear, lemon rinds and ever-so-slight stonefruit, with tongue-tingling acidity deep into the finish.

2012 Sophia's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Temecula)
From one of Temecula's shining stars comes this great bottling, with aromas of fresh boysenberry, vanilla bean, pencil lead, dried sage, bay leaf and sandalwood. It's somewhat light in body but packs a wide range of flavors, from thyme and oregano to graphite, black plum and elderberry, presented with chalky tannins.

Palumbo Family Vineyards
2012 Tre Fratelli Red (Temecula)
One of the promising wineries in the region presents this elegant blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, which shows dill, mint, black peppercorns, beef char and blackberry-blueberry fruit on the nose. The blackberry and plum-led palate picks up tobacco, oregano, dark spice and more charred-beef notes
