Tasting Notes

Whole cluster lightly pressed Grenache. Native ferment in older barrels as well. There's a spice component in the wine that comes from the Grenache grape that is very intriguing. Balanced with a floral nose.

Vineyard Notes

The Santa Maria Valley – of Santa Barbara County – is one of California’s coolest AVAs, with one of the longest growing seasons in the world. The region is defined by its well-drained, lean soils and the unique east/west transverse mountain ranges that act as a funnel for morning fog and cold afternoon winds off the Pacific Ocean, resulting in balanced, vibrant wines.
