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.
These five spring wines are inspired by longer evenings in the sunshine! One of these wines is the first expression of the Ibarra-Young Vineyard's 50th harvest (more coming in fall). All five of these wines will be perfect chilled at your favorite picnic spot, or accompany your dinner party with elegance. I hope these wines make your spring and summer a whole lot brighter!
Lots of love, Alice
