    Winemaker Notes

    Wow! If you love Spanish wine, you must try this varietally correct Cal-Iberico version of the most widely planted grape in the world (of course 90% of it is in Spain). A touch of American oak make this a ringer for any Reserva Rioja or Ribera, but it's from Santa Barbara County and made by Greg Martellotto. This winemaker highlights sustainable vineyards and has a hands-off approach to winemaking. The fruit shines through with bright red raspberry, a touch of bittersweet chocolate, and fantastic fruit/acid balance.

    50% of the net sales from this wine to Project Learn Belize, which is helping needy children in Dangriga, Belize and cross-cultural exchanges. Try this wine and gift it to your friends. Only 4 barrels produced.

    Santa Ynez Valley Wine

    Ranging from cool and foggy in the west to warm and dry in the east, the Santa Ynez Valley is a climatically diverse growing area. The most expansive AVA within the larger Santa Barbara County region, Santa Ynez is also home to a wide variety of soil types and geographical features. The appellation is further divided into four distinct sub-AVAs—Sta. Rita Hills, Ballard Canyon, Los Olivos District and Happy Canyon—each with its own defining characteristics.

    A wide selection of grapes is planted here—more than sixty different varieties, and counting. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir dominate in the chilly west, while Zinfandel, Rhône blends, and Bordeaux blends rule the arid east. Syrah is successful at both ends of the valley, with a lean and peppery, Old-World sensibility closer to the coast and lush berry fruit further inland.

    Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port wine.
