95The Wine Advocate

...notes of cassis, cigar box, pencil shavings and thyme on the nose. Medium-bodied, it's ultra classy, with a super fine texture, expressive, mineral-laced fruits and a long, ethereal finish.

94Wine Enthusiast

Creamy aromas of blueberry, cassis, caramel and fudge meet with floral hints of violet and a subtle savoriness... It's suave and lavish on the palate, loaded with jammy black-fruit, caramel and chocolate-mousse flavors, with a touch of espresso bean providing balance on the finish.

94-96Jeb Dunnuck

Beautifully pure cassis, violets, flowery incense, and spice notes all emerge from this beauty, which is soft, supple, layered, and just impossible to resist.

90James Suckling

This red shows leafy character with lots of ripe blackberries and blueberry jam, as well as some menthol and coffee. Full-bodied palate with a deep core of fruit.


United States, California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara County, Santa Ynez Valley, Happy Canyon

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.
