Overview of the Wine
In 2008, William and Nancy Kimsey established a small, 22-acre vineyard in the Ballard Canyon appellation of Santa Barbara County. The development of this vineyard was a purposeful one. Devotees of pleasurable, cerebral wines, Bill and Nancy had long searched for a site amenable to growing grape varieties they found most compelling; namely several found in the Rhone region of France; syrah, grenache, viognier and roussanne.
Our estate vineyard is located on the edges of the storied Ballard Canyon appellation. It was planted by the esteemed farming company, Coastal Vineyard Care Associates, under the careful guidance of Matt Dees and Ruben Solarzano.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Charming complexity with baking spices and a structure defined by chalky tannins that are both simultaneously firm and forgiving. Will certainly benefit from a few years in the cellar.
