Santa Barbara Winery 2013 Joughin Vineyard Lagrein (Santa Ynez Valley)

Editors' Choice

Incredibly dark in the glass, this bottling of a rarely planted but quite fascinating Northern Italian grape show crushed graphite, turned earth, concentrated blueberry and elderberry, and a touch of purple flowers on the brooding nose. Ripe black currants start the sip before waves of powerful acidity, gravelly minerality and peppery spice take hold. Matt Kettmann
