4 new releases from our associates in Temecula in southern California.

2021 Danza del Sol Sauvignon Blanc Property – A bit unctuous and candy, with notes of brown butter and a thick layer of spice, this doesn’t instantly connote sauvignon blanc, save for the notes of contemporary grass and florals on the nostril. The physique evokes lemon custard and oaky vanilla, once more fairly unorthodox for sauvignon blanc, missing the intense acidity one expects from the type. B / $35

2021 Wiens Fiano Temecula Valley – Grassy, citrusy, and tropical , this contemporary bottling of fiano is a crowd-pleaser with hints of coconut tempering the notes of lemon and apple that dominate the assault. A twist of licorice and a pinch of bitter herbs will be seen because the wine warms a contact, significantly on the end. B+ / $26

2018 Robert Renzoni Barbera Riserva Temecula Valley – 100% barbera, bottled with an ornate metallic crest on the entrance, so it have to be fancy, proper? Certain sufficient: It’s a strong expression of barbera, flippantly spiced with notes of cherry dominant, segueing into vanilla, tea leaf, and a few bay leaf. A dusting of cocoa powder provides the end an after-dinner pop. A- / $55

2016 Palumbo Household Merlot Catfish Winery – Due to Sideways, one’s expectations of merlot are at all times tepid — however I at all times find yourself pleasantly stunned by it. Identical case right here: On this bottling a full of life blueberry character leads the best way to notes of tea leaf and silky milk chocolate, with racy acidity propping up the end. Approachable however weighty with ample gravity, the wine hints at balsamic components with out ever turning into hoary or feeling oxidized. Ingesting completely nicely on the age of 6. A- / $56
