Tasting notes


<li> unique, highly individual style of winemaking <li> drink in the next couple of years<br><br> Mount Palomar was one of the first to settle into Temecula, a region recently hit hard by Pierce's Disease. To its credit, this winery shows no sign of joi


It starts off a little funky and yeasty, but opens up nicely. Overall, it clearly separates itself from the oaked, malolactic cookie cutter school of winemaking. Aromatically, it shows peach, with lots of baked apple, fresh-baked dough and leesy, caramel
