New Release of Rombauer's rare Twin Rivers Zinfandel!
This wine is ruby red with a bright hue, with aromas of bright blackberry, black cherry, and briar notes. The aromas are echoed on the palate along with expansive and dense flavors of baking spices, vanilla, and dried florals. The ripe tannins frame the palate and provide a balanced texture to give the wine structure and roundness.
Spanish for “the gold,” El Dorado Vineyard sits not far from where the precious metal was first discovered in California. As the state’s early pioneers coveted gold, Koerner Rombauer so prized the Zinfandel from this site that he could not resist when the chance to buy the vineyard arose in 2010. This marks the eighth vintage of El Dorado Zinfandel under the Rombauer family’s ownership.

New release of Rombauer Merlot!
Enticing and lively red color; beautifully aromatic with black cherry and ripe plum. On the palate a purity of blackcurrant, cedar and mint flavors blend together seamlessly. Soft and supple, this wine has a medium-bodied mouth-feel with plush tannins that integrate with the generous finish. The Carneros region with its climate and clay soils allows us to produce a Merlot which is true to the varietal’s characteristics. The longer growing season allows the fruit to reach maturity slowly, giving us fruit which is soft and elegant, yet rich and full flavored.
