Santa Barbara County
A blend of 80% grenache from Thompson Vineyard and 20% syrah from Bien Nacido. In 2006 we had conditions that gave us ultra-ripe grenache fruit that was spectacular, yet a bit difuse. Blending in well balanced syrah from Bien Nacido was just the trick to making this wine complete. In the bottle this wine has really come together, offering up raspberry aromatics and the delicous textural quality that only grenache can deliver.
