WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
As with many wines, it’s often less
important to know what it is or who
made it than where it came from. The
soil in which the grapes are grown has
the greatest impact on the final wine.
Our Delayed in Glass proprietors are
not only fully cognizant of that, but are
devout devotees of the concept.
Our jewel of a Merlot/Syrah/Sangiovese
blend came from no less than three
ultra premium vineyards in Santa
Barbara.
The Syrah came from White Hawk
Vineyards in the Los Alamos Valley.
Here is the warm climate in which
Syrah flourishes. As a result, you will find
grapes from this vineyard adorning
some of the most heralded wines made
in the state.
Larner Vineyard is owned by winemaker
Michael Larner and his wife Christine.
Michael possesses one of the most
impressive resumes we’ve seen. He has
worked for Antinori in Chianti, Guigal
in the Rhône and Babcock and Rusack
in Santa Barbara. His vineyard is one
of the most revered in the country for
Sangiovese.
And finally, Merlot from Happy Canyon
Vineyard rounds out the blend. The
soil here is so rocky that the vines must
struggle to find water, but that struggle
is what imparts the strength to the
vines and the flavor intensity to the
grapes.
The result is power and glory
unmatched. The plethora of plum,
anise and earth swirl on your palate in
an endless array and deposit flavor and
finesse all along the way.
