Cool deal, use the wine map to get 241 tasting, and the pours are generous! You get 15% discount on what you buy and if you Like them on Facebook you can also get another discount! I got buy 3, get 4! so it's nice. $15 Premium tasting, 12 total pours due to 241, 3 were Premium

- 2008 Chard - no
- 2010 Viognier, Kimberly Vinyards (KV) $32 - wonderfully sweet peach
- 2009 Il Terrazza Rosso, KV $28 - wonderful summery aroma and flavor, ripe delicious fruit but not fruity.
- 2005 Cab - no
- 2007 Tempranillo $34 - I thought no, but Patty was pleasantly suprised by it's lightness and suppleness, not as dry and more fruity than others which taste like "bark on a tree"
- 2007 Mourvedre $34 - I said no, Patty liked the light spice and smoothness.
- 2007 Elio Doro $35 - Too dry for Patty but I thought this allows for a nice pairing with steak. Wonderful chery/berry aroma
- 2007 Syrah KV $35 - Too dry for both of us :)

- 2006 Trinita Paso Robles $42 - We were told this is a house favorite and usually I discount such influence. Even though it is drier, even Patty loved it! A rich Super Tuscan style which is deep and rich.
- 2002 Libeccio - we skipped because it's from Santa Barbara ;-)
- 2005 Merlot South Coast - disappointing
- Triborado (Syrah Port) $42 500ml - wonderfully chocolate like deep port, but I prefer my $18 750ml Taylor Fladgate Reserve

- of the four, we had the Island Cuvee Lilikoi which I enjoyed but Patty felt was too flowery :)

We wandered around Old town for a few hours and spent a good amount of time at this winery's wine tasting room. It was beautifully decorated and people were very friendly. We came home with a few bottles including an amazing sparkling wine!

Everyone has their own likes/dislikes in wines, but you may just find some wine here that needs to go home with you.

Stop in while you're shopping the old town area of Temecula, CA.
