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
Pomegranate and cranberry. Incense and rose petals. Black cherry and red plum. A very soulful and thought provoking grenache offering with an invigorating inner-perfume and wonderful precision . Sublety, silkiness and finesse on the finish. Such an elegant expression from a warm vintage. Like a silk pillowcase. Cigar, fig and aged balsamic. Absolutely fine grained and mouth-coating tannins like cacao powder. Finishes with persistent red raspberry that lingers and brightens with time.
