Winemaker Notes: “The allure of the open road was everything you needed. Sandalwood beads hang from the rear-view and with the top down you take in the hot asphalt. Wondering if you’ll make it by sunset you reach for the kopiko coffee candy which is nestled between your clove cigarettes and raspberry vanilla crumble bars you packed for later. The orange sun hangs low in the sky as you turn onto a dirt road and pass through a lavender field. If you hadn’t been there so many times before there is no way you could find it. You park next to the others’ car and walk the rest of the way in. They are already swimming in the cerulean pool beneath the waterfall. You strip down and dive in.”

 

94 Points: The 2014 En Gedi Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard is 100% Grenache that was fermented with 30% whole cluster and aged mostly in new Puncheons. It's lighter ruby color is followed by a killer Grenache perfume of kirsch, dried spice, dried flowers and hints of vanilla. Elegant, graceful and lightly textured, yet not light on flavor or intensity, it's a beautiful Grenache that I wish was more prevalent in California.” by Jeb Dunnuck, formerly with Robert Parker
