Lucas & Lewellen’s Valley View Vineyard, where the vineyard slopes gently toward the Santa Ynez River, features fine sand and gravelly loam soils. The nearby mountains channel cool ocean air in from the Pacific to temper the warm climate.
Aged 21 months in French oak (40% new), this is a softer side of Cabernet, where layers of blackberry and fig jam play with a mineral kick of wet slate & loam. Purple flowers, blackberry juice, dried herbs, red licorice and rooibos tea frames silky tannins through the long finish.
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7.5% Petit Verdot, 7.5% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc.
