CAMINS 2 DREAMS RED
GRENACHE + SYRAH + CARIGNAN + GAMAY + GRÜNER VELTLINER : SANTA RITA HILLS, CA
Falling for wine as they fell for each other, wives and winemakers Tara Gomez and Mireia Taribó traveled the world studying and making wine together before settling/resettling in Santa Barbara County. They began their dream project, Camins 2 Dreams, in 2017 with a focus on the Santa Rita Hills’ wild and magical vineyards. These four red grapes and one sassy white represent all of C2D’s varietals, partially cofermented for a uniquely lively but elegant take on Coastal Cali.
Tasting Notes: Black cherry, pomegranate, orange oil, violets, so fresh and elegant
MR RIGGS ‘THE MAGNET’
GRENACHE : McLAREN VALE, AUSTRALIA
Grenache is nearly as central to Australian wine-growing as Shiraz, but like most things in the 1980’s, these classic varietals fell victim to a fad. The government enacted a ‘Vine Pull Scheme,’ uprooting old-vine sites in favor of the hugely popular Cabernet..sigh. Thankfully, about 1 hectare of fruit made it through the gauntlet at Dogridge Vineyard in McLaren Vale and the vines are now around 100-years-old and super babied for low-yielding but densely flavored fruit. Winemaker Ben Riggs, with nearly 50 vintages under his belt, calls this his ‘dream vineyard.’
Tasting Notes: Black raspberry, purple plum, crispy brownie, violets, dried cherries, smoldering wood
