96Jeb Dunnuck

...offers a big, boisterous, Grenache-driven bouquet of raspberry and strawberry fruits supported by ground pepper, cured meats, and gamey nuances. Rich, full-bodied, and seamless on the palate, it's another rocking wine boasting incredible richness and depth while staying weightless, elegant, and seamless.

95The Wine Advocate

...loaded with wild berry jam aromas complemented by wafts of licorice, sage, powdered sugar and olive. The medium-bodied palate is smooth, juicy and drinkable, boasting powerful yet elegant fruit and a fan of spicy accents across the finish.

94Vinous / IWC

Red/purplish berry fruit, rose petal, lavender and spice are some of the many notes that run through this harmonious, beautifully balanced wine.


United States, California, Central 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.
