RATINGS

93Vinous / IWC

Bright, focused and beautifully articulated...fresh, vibrant red fruits and sweet aromatics, all accented by a kick of Sangiovese acidity.

17Jancis Robinson

Dusty floral and red fruit aromatics with a dark palate accented by a red fruit lift...persistent tannins that are not aggressive and in fact quite fine... Offers notes of gunmetal and cherry pit, but pulls back before it gets sweet.

The estate produces Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and a Red Wine Vineyard Blend.

REGION

United States, California, South Coast, Santa Barbara County, Santa Ynez Valley

Santa Ynez Valley AVA is home to more wineries than any other area in Santa Barbara County. The appellation was established in 1983 and it includes a total of 76,800 acres, of which 1,500 acres are vineyards. Chardonnay is the dominant grape in this appellation, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Pinot Noir, and Merlot. The appellation runs east and west with temperatures and microclimates changing significantly from warmer in the east to cool by the time the district gets close to the Pacific Ocean. In recent years Rhone-style wines have been successfully made here, and vineyards now are also planted to Syrah, Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache, Mourvedre and Marsanne.

TYPE

Red Wine, Sangiovese

This red grape is largely grown in central Italy. As the sole component or in a blend, it gives us Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino and Super Tuscans, among other favorites wines. The name is derived from the Latin for “blood of Jove.”
