Dragonette John Sebastiano Vineyard Grenache 2013
|Appellation||Santa Ynez Valley|
Wine AdvocateLeading off the reds and coming from two blocks, one completely sandy soils and the other more clay, is the 2013 Grenache John Sebastiano Vineyard. (The Grenache vines here fall outside of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation so this is released as a Santa Ynez Valley AVA.) It has a beautiful, floral, feminine style as well as medium-bodied notes of sweet cherries, mulberries, spring flowers and candied violets. It's not a blockbuster, but it shines for its elegance and impeccable balance. Drink this beauty over the coming 4-6 years.
