La Voix Ecstasy of Gold 2013
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and 10% Malbec
This cabernet is different than anything that I have ever produced before; I am really excited about it!
With Bordeaux varieties being the latest genre of wines to garner attention and acclaim in this region, I wanted to draw not only on my experience here in Santa Barbara County of working with such pioneers as Fred Brander of Brander Vineyards, but also the experience garnered working in other upstart regions such as Mendoza, Argentina and Walla Walla, Washington. Over seven years of work in both of these very diverse regions has given me what I consider a unique perspective on working with these varietals.
