The 2021 growing season was a dream. Our weather was consistent with cool evenings and warm days. We had no significant heat spikes here in Santa Barbara County so the grapes were able to ripen steadily and evenly throughout the year. I think this translates into the wines. They are elegant and full of texture and flavor.
I’m elated to introduce the four fall wines to you. Three of these wines are new to the âmevive line up, and one is an old favorite. These wines are the product of our second complete growing season tending the land at Ibarra-Young. They are energetic, soulful, and a piece of me. Although these four wines are delicious now, don’t be afraid to lay them down for a few years. I’m confident these wines will only get better for 10+ years.
Lots of love, Alice
