Alex's Red Barn Wines and Brandies

Alex's Red Barn Winery features three classes of  wine: the "Old-vine", the mediterranean and the Solera style Sherry.
We also feature four brandies: Stingaree Pastis, White Pastis, Grappa and Alex's Red Barn Brandy.
Old-vine Sauvignon Blanc  
This treasured wine, interchangeably called Sauvignon Blanc or Fume Blanc, is made from Yakut Vineyards' forty year
old vines.
Sauvignon Blanc is one of the noblest of the "noble" wines; it is a winemaker's wine. DNA studies found that along
with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc was a parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That hybridization was apparently the
result of a spontaneous field crossing. Sauvingon Blanc is also one of only two wines, the other is Muscat, in which one
can readily recoize the taste of the grapes in the wine itself. It is characterized by a very distinctive aroma. It is grassy,
musky and has the zesty refreshing taste of gooseberries and nettles. It shares a certain herbaceous similarity with its
noble offspring, Cabernet Sauvingnon.
So, order a bottle or a case of this perfect wine and savor its distinctive flavors.

Old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon  
Gold Medal Cabernet Sauvignons have been produced from old vine grapes grown on our Yakut Vineyards. This
Cabernet will thrill you with its intricacy and subtlety. It possesses the exact, and pronounced fruit flavor of black
currants and the aroma of green peppers. Drink a glass of this marvelous wine and it will convey to you the compelling
feeling you get when listening to Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. The Red Barn's
old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon is hand
crafted from fully mature grapes that are not harvested till they reach the exact degree of ripeness of 24.5 Brix, so as to
get the full effect of Temecula's hot sun and cool nights. Reward yourself with a bottle of this majestically beautiful
wine.
Old-vine Johannisberg Riesling    
Andre Tchelistcheff, the legendary dean of american winemakers, once wrote that he saw Temecula as the place to
produce one of the greatest Rieslings. He cited two reasons: Riesling matures there very late, as it matures in the upper
Rhine. And they are grown in gravelly, light, granitic soils which are only available there.  Many of Temecula's best
winemakers consider Yakut Vineyards Rieslings as the premier Riesling grapes of Temecula. The Riesling grapes have
the advantage of retaining their acidity while achieving high levels of sugar. This fact leads to the production of wines
with long aging potential. Riesling has a sweet,spicy flavor, with a taste of peaches and apricot. Its crisp acidity results
in a well balanced wine, easy to drink as an aperitif or as a complement to fish or poultry.  Treat yourself to a bottle of
this excellent wine.

Old-vine White Cabernet Sauvignon   
The White Cabernet Sauvignon, is an ideal rose-type summer wine made by leaving the grapes’ dark skins to remain
long enough in the fermenting vats to extract the proper color. Enjoy it as an aperitif or paired with almost any summer
meal. It is slightly sweet, as it has 1.5 % residual sugar. It has hints of strawberries and water melon, but with the
unmistakable finish of Cabernet Sauvignon. To enjoy it best, chill it slightly and savor its unforgettable
taste                                             

Red Barn's Mediterranean Wines
Currently, we produce three mediterranean wines: Syrah,  Viognier and Grenache. They are from the upper  Rhone
region in France, and they have adapted very well to our terroir.

Syrah
Our Syrah is deep-colored and tannic, with strong tar, spice and pepper qualities. It has the aroma of black currants and
plums, with a hint of smokiness. This high quality red wine gained it reputation in France's Rhone region. Our climate is
very similar to that area of Southern France, and we succeeded in duplicating the French grape, but with a Southern
Californian accent. We assure you that it will thrill you when you try this magnificent  and bold wine.

Viognier
Viognier  is the most fashionable  white wine of the last twenty years, it is a truly elegant wine. It is high in alcohol, low
in acidity and high in tannin. The wine has a very fragrant bouquet packed with perfumed aromas of flowers and
spices. It features notes of apricot, peach, mango, and types of citrus.  Our Viognier, with  13.3 % alcohol , has a
viscous feel in the mouth and a warm pleasant finish. Enjoy it with poultry, pepper steak, strong or salty cheeses, spicy
Asian foods and Mediterranean cuisine.

Grenache
The Grenache , like all our other wines, is estate grown in our own vineyard. You will find this Grenache to be a
hearty, full-bodied ripe red wine. It is fruity and high in alcohol, but generally low in tannin.  It possesses the
pronounced flavors of black currants, black cherries, blackberries and the aroma of green peppers. It is a truly
seductive wine, you will greatly enjoy.  Savor it with hearty red meats, including grilled meats, roast leg of lamb and
with roasted turkey, chicken, and stews.
                                           
Solera-Type Cream Sherry
Sherry is without a doubt one of the world’s great wines. Its origins date back to the Phoenician colonies in
the Iberian Peninsula, even before Roman times. Our Sherry is produced using the traditional “Solera”
method so as  to maintain quality and style consistency. It is a full “oloroso” of fragrant aroma and is full
bodied and well balanced.  Drink it as an aperitif or as an after-dinner drink. Enjoy it on ice any time of the
day. It is our desire to make your tasting of this magnificent wine a pleasant and memorable experience
.

Portobello
Portobello is an elegant, fruity and hearty dessert wine made from our Grenache wine grapes. It is then
fortified with our distillery-made brandy to a 36 proof strength. It possesses the pronounced flavors of
luscious berries ,warm spices and black pepper. Serve it after dinner with semi-sweet dark chocolate,dry
fruits, roasted nuts or Stilton cheese.

Stingaree Pastis   
Stingaree Pastis is a 100 proof anise-flavored brandy. It is made in a copper alambic still, hand made by
Portuguese  craftsmen in Europe. Pastis has had a sensational success in Farnce since it was introduced by
Paul Ricard in 1932 to replace the then-banned Absinthe. It is one of many anise flavor drinks found around
the Mediterranean. It is an anise-flavored brandy that includes licorice root and a number of other herbs
infused in it.  Please add water or some ice cubes to the 100 proof Pastis before serving it.

White Pastis
This is also an anise-flavored brandy similar to the Stingaree Pastis, but it does not include the other herbs
infused in the Stingaree Pastis. It is 80 proof. It turns white with the addition of water, rather than yellow.
Enjoy it with Mediterranean food.

Grappa
Grappa is a uniquely Italian drink which has become a very fashionable and expensive drink . Traditionally,
made from pomace, the discarded grape seeds, stalks, and stems that are a by-product of the winemaking
process. Grappa has been around since the Middle Ages. For generations, Italians have sipped this
"firewater" after meals, called it a digetivo,  and even added a little to their morning espresso, to "correct"
it,  and called this Caffe Corretto. . Our Grappa is made from aromatic white wine grapes, most notably
Muscat which . we grow in our own vineyard. And like all of our brandies, it is painstakingly handcrafted  in
an alambic pot still, where it is triple distilled to produce that smooth taste.

Brandy
Thanks to triple distillation in the alambic still and long time ageing in oak, the taste of our brandy rivals that
of the best of French cognacs  that sell at many times the price.  Choose a  proper  brandy dinking glass, such
as a snifter. Then pour no more than an ounce of brandy in it  and heat it in the palm of your hand for about 8
to 10 minutes.  Put your nose to the edge of the glass and inhale the floral aromas of iris, rose, pear, cherry,
apricot, grapefruit or orange zest. It is truly an elegant drink
