  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 lead 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 excelent wine.
  Old-vine Sauvignon Blanc
This treasured wine, interchangeably called Sauvignon Blanc or Fume Blanc, is made from Yakut Vineyards' forty year old vines. The Red Barn's Sauvignon Blanc is blended with only 1% Viognier to enhance its freshness. Otherwise it is totally Sauvignon Blanc. So, order a bottle or a case of this perfect wine and savor its distinctive flavors.
