RATINGS

93+ Vinous / IWC

...bold, dense wine. Black fruit, leather, tobacco, scorched earth and menthol build in a deep, layered Happy Canyon Cabernet that delivers the goods.

92Jeb Dunnuck

...slightly more giving and rounded, with medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of currants, tobacco, bay leaf, and dried herbs.

REGION

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.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
