94The Wine Advocate

A sexy, full-bodied effort, it offers a decidedly floral-laced profile with ripe blackberry, plum, violets and licorice all emerging from the glass. Glass-staining and rich, it holds everything together brilliantly and has ripe tannin

93Wine Spectator

A powerful wine, offering a gorgeous core of vivid, rich blackberry, wild berry and raspberry, with shades of tar, pencil lead and black licorice. Holds focus through the finish.

93Vinous / IWC

Heady, exotically perfumed black and blue fruit liqueur aromas are complicated by suggestions of incense, candied violet, cured tobacco and vanilla. Shows a deft blend of Old and New World qualities on the palate


United States, California, South Coast, Santa Barbara County

Santa Barbara County is not an AVA, but a region just south of San Luis Obispo that includes the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley appellations. Wine has been produced in the area since the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted vineyards. It wasn’t until the 1990s, however, that producers focused on growing premier grapes for fine wines. During the 1990s more than 10,000 acres of vineyards were planted, and today there are nearly 20,000 acres of vineyards. The region received a big bump in recognition and prestige when the popular film “Sideways” was shot there in 2004. Because the region is affected by maritime weather, it is relatively cool climate makes it ideal for Chardonnay. Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and an increasingly adventuresome number of varietals are also grown successfully in Santa Barbara County.
