Backroads Red Blend
Sta. Rita Hills
It is along the backroads of Santa Barbara County that I have found the vineyards that have given rise to my most spectacular wines. In the process of making those wines, there are a number of occasions when less than 100% of their volume in barrels can be captured unfiltered with perfect clarity. When the 5% of cloudy wine that is left can be blended and filtered, then for me, it's time to honor those vineyards by collecting that wine and putting it in a bottle.
