New Scores for Rhone Wines!

February 15, 2022

We have a handful of new scores for our Rhone grape based wines from Wine Enthusiast and Wine & Spirits Magazine! 

  • 2019 Grenache: 93pts, Wine Enthusiast 
  • 2018 Grenache, 93pts, Wine & Spirits 
  • 2017 Syrah, 94pts Wine & Spirits 
  • NV Mouvedre, 91pts, Wine & Spirits 

El Dorado's unique combination of rocky soil elevation make for a special location for Rhone grapes. In our region, they express incredible depth and structure, while retaining balance and vibracy. Across the region, these grapes sing of the location they are grown, and are certainly worth seeking out!
