Winemaker's Notes

"Mostly mourvedre (53 percent) with grenache (25) and syrah (22), this Rhone-inspired blend has a generous brightness. The varieties combine in layers of aromas an flavor, from fresh red fruit - wild strawberries - to dried red cherries, from white flowers to white pepper and cardamom spice. A wine of suble charms to buy by the case, and to serve whenever lamb chops are on the grill this summer."
-Wines & Spirits

Inspired by the pleasurable table wines of the southern Rhône Valley, Winemaker Chuck Carlson established our Heritage Series to craft unique, flavorful cuvées for everyday enjoyment. Our 2002 Heritage Cuvée is a robust Rhône-style blend that hails from the Mediterranean climes of Santa Barbara County's Santa Ynez Valley. Serve with good food, good company and good vibes.

Our 2002 Heritage Cuvée offers bright aromas of plum and violets, followed by rich flavors of black fruits with refreshing high notes of cranberry and cherry toward the finish. The texture is full and balanced, unfolding with warm, toasty accents of oak-inspired vanilla. Firm acidity and integrated tannins ensure that this wine will develop nicely over the next several years.
