Monte De Oro is pleased to present its inaugural release of its Red Dessert Wine – Legato. 

In musical terms, “legato” indicates that musical notes are played or sung smoothly and connected without any noticeable breaks.  This ideally defines our red dessert wine – a smooth composition of Zinfandel and Cinsault resulting in a long, sweet, velvety finish.

The Zinfandel component came from Monte De Oro’s Galway Vineyard while the Cinsault component came from the Tuclota Vineyard. 

Our 2007 Red Dessert Wine was barrel-aged in 100% French oak barrels.  It was bottled in May 2011 and bottle aged for 6 months before its release in December 2011.


 Monte De Oro’s 2007 Legato is a jammy, deep, burgundy colored dessert wine.  With its golden rim edges, the wine offers a pleasant bouquet of raisins, black currants, and caramel with hints of clove and maple syrup.  Upon taste, the mouth explodes with ripe plum, figs, brown sugar, ripe cherries with toasted nuts, vanilla and tinges of black licorice.   The 2007 Legato provides for a long, smooth, sweet velvet finish, making you wanting to come back for another taste.  This wine would go great once reduced down to syrup form drizzled over “adult waffles” with berry infused mascarpone cheese or a berry cobbler.


The 2007 Legato will be available for purchase on December 3rd at or call 951-491-6551 for more info.

Monte De Oro Winery & Vineyards of Temecula California is delighted to announce the release of the 2008 Vintage of their Proprietary Red Blend Congruity. The wine will be released to the public on October 1st. The wine had been previously released to Monte De Oro Wine Club Members on Thursday September 22nd.

Monte De Oro’s 2008 Congruity is a blend of 60% Syrah from our Vista Del Monte Vineyard and 40% Zinfandel from our Galway Vineyard.

Monte De Oro named this wine “Congruity” as this wine has the quality of being congruous and in harmony, offering a point of agreement between the flavors, tannins and finish of the two wines producing this blend.

The two wines comprising this blend were barrel-aged in French & American Oak barrels for 28 months. 27% was aged in brand new French Oak, 20% in aged in brand new American Oak and the balance 53%) was aged in two-to-four year old French & American Oak. This wine was bottled on March 8, 2011 producing 408 cases.

The 2008 Congruity is a rich, deep purple colored wine offering a bouquet of blackberry jam . This bouquet is complimented with aromas of vanilla, oak, cranberry and subtle splices. With soft, mellow tannins and medium acidity, this full bodied wine provides a rich fruit basket on the taste with blackberries, black cherries, hints of plum and dried cranberries, black liquorice, anise and cocoa. Monte De Oro’s 2008 Congruity provides a smooth, slightly smoky finish (from the Syrah component) that is long and wanting for a second taste.
