This unique blend of 75% Grenache from Chelle Mountain near Paso Robles and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon from Star Lane in Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara starts with aromas of dried cherry, plum, slate and wet soil. There is great French toast spice character to the complex yet well integrated palate, where dark-cherry and black-plum flavors ride a vibrant acidity. Matt Kettmann

When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
