This is a vibrant, pale yellow wine which glistens in the sunlight and is the quintessential summertime sipper. The first thought is refreshing after nosing this wine and discovering tropical fruits such as kiwi and casaba melon notes and a touch of linalool and blood orange notes. The palate is completely balanced in its acidity and mid palate allowing a variation of flavors to be revealed: citron lemon, key lime, Pipen apple, fig and Meyer lemon zest. It finishes with honeysuckle, mango, passion fruit and kumquat.

"A new offering from the producer, this is a classically tropical, honeyed white wine, viscous, thick and oaky, with a touch of butter teasing the palate as it opens in the glass. For fans of full-bodied flavor, this is creamy and buttery in spades." – V. B.

The wine has a long and elegant finish and is ideal with fresh oysters on the half shell and pairs well with fresh cracked crab or crab cakes, grilled fish, sea scallops or chicken korma, a mildly spicy almond chicken curry (Indian), and goes nicely with grilled wild Salmon with sweet potatoes and baked organic asparagus.

4/5 stars
Restaurant Wine, 07/17

This Rosé was made as part of the Red Dirt Red wine family, by taking some of the juice at the distemmer before the grapes were pumped into the red fermenter. However, a good portion of the wine was made by pressing the grapes directly in the press.
“Screw cap. Excellent quality rose. It is fragrant, full bodied, balanced, and long on the finish, tasting of cherry, plum, watermelon, herbs, and white pepper. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre. [2017-2018].”

20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION

This wine pairs well with Mexican Carnitas tacos (barbecued pork) spiced with cardamom and spicy chiles served with salsa fresca. It’s great with anything off the grill from Tri-tip to chops to filet mignon and for vegetarians go for an impossible burger made with grains and/or mushrooms.

Vinum 2016 Red Dirt Red (Paso Robles) - Very strong smoky aromas of hickory and a solid pepper spice give a savory background to the backdrop of blackberry fruit on the nose of this bottling. That smoke carries into the palate, where roasted wood, campfire and bacon flavors meet with black currant and caramel. —M.K.
abv: 14.5% Price: $25

This is the most concentrated vintage of Red Dirt Red we have ever made. It expresses a dark plum, cranberry staining color which comes from low yielding, concentrated grapes.

"This is a seriously delicious wine that's packed tightly with fruit, floral and spice flavors and has a firm but velvety texture that makes it a pleasure to sip. It has a deep dark ruby color, experssive aromas, generous black-cherry and dark chocolate flavors and a lingering fifnish. Best after 2022."

Wine Enthusiast, 03/18

"Very rich and ripe, but also very firm and well built, this full-bodied wine has all the elements for great balance: robust and dry fruit flavors, good acidity, firm but not harsh tannins and appropriately strong alcohol. It's great to drink now with something rich and fatty, but will be best after 2020."

"This is a full-bodied and broadly structured wine, lush and plush with plenty of wide-ranging appeal. Baking spice, cherry and plum combine around earthy tannin and smoky oak – the fruit always front and center." – V.B.

“Thick grippy tannins surround a core of mountain sage and dried herb in this 100% varietal wine. tart underlying acidity brightens a triumvirate of cherry, cassis and red currant, with the promise of rocky minerality lingering on the finish."

“This wine packs a punch and overdelivers quality for the price. This is a crowd-pleaser in its lush, soft and fruity combination of grilled meat, bacon and smoky tannin. Those big bold elements are complemented by plenty of black-cherry jam.”

Vinum Cellars was established in 1997 based on producing value oriented, varietal/appellation specific wines. Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley confirms our belief that only specific grape varietals should be grown within appellations that are ideally suited to the varietal.

92 Points, Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast
Impressive at any price, but especially notable at this cost, this 100% varietal red is a testament to the power and concentration of the vintage, integrated with a push of tannin on the back of the tongue. Spicy clove and pepper ride a wave of cassis, dark cherry and chocolate, needing time to unwind in the glass. It will do well in the cellar through 2028.

92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The wine hits the palate with a voluptuous texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, silky tannins and a long, long finish. At $42.00 a bottle, it is a steal."
