Santa Ynez Valley AVA
It’s the joy I get from crafting blends that inspired this Rhône blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, tagged “246” in honor of Highway 246 that runs the course of our Santa Ynez Valley. Using three different grape varietals to create a well-balanced wine with an aromatic bouquet and clean fruit characteristics is true art for the palate. These grape varietals originated in the Rhône region of France before arriving in California in the 1980s where they flourished in the diverse microclimates of the Santa Ynez Valley corridor. My “GSM” was aged in a mix of French and American oak using traditional age-old winemaking methods with a touch of modern technology. I hope that you enjoy this artisanal blend as much as I enjoyed crafting it.
