    Winemaker Notes

    With upfront dark fruit, balanced tannins, and a long finish with hints of vanilla, this is a crowd pleaser. Big enough for true Cabernet aficionados but approachable in style to allow your holiday house guests to enjoy a glass or two.

    80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc

    After several years of encouragement and a swift kick from his wife -a.k.a. "The Voice of Reason"- Nick de Luca finally decided it was time to go out on his own. So, in 2010, with more moxie than money, Nick made Ground Effect a reality. His wines, much like the mind behind them, are tough to categorize. They challenge the senses, ignite endless hours of free-wheeling banter, grab you by the lapels, and go straight for the jugular. Pretty complicated for such a simple dude.

    Nick says, "As a winemaker and viticulturist, I'm often asked to describe my ideal wine. Simply put, my ideal wine is one unencumbered by winemaking and viticulture. For me, the grandest wines are those that describe the particular zone from which the grapes originate. I call the phenomenon "Ground Effect," and my small wine company is dedicated to exploring this powerful relationship between wine and earth. A wine without cause is a wine without effect..."

    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.

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
