Two Brothers John and Steve Dragonette and close friend Brandon Sparks-Gillis formed Dragonette Cellars in order to pursue a long-held dream to produce wines of the utmost quality and purity from the finest vineyards in Santa Barbara County and the Central Coast. I will say that they have succeeded! Many of you have purchased their great bounties, and you’ll love this latest release too!
This is a blend of three great vineyard sources (Thompson, McGinley and Watch Hill) The blend is 50% Grenache, 36% Mourvedre and 15% Syrah. This was one of the cooler vintages but the result was balanced wine at a slightly lower alcohol content than usual (13.8%). The wine is broad, lush and full in body loaded with blue and black stone fruits, hints of pepper and a touch of flowery tones. This powerful, yet elegant wine has a silky texture and long elegant finish that showcases what Dragonette is really about. Only 260 cases produced of this little gem and I know it will go quick!
