Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California

$23.75 / each

Description:

This floral, velvety blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Carignan is an incredibly pleasant surprise. Juicy, soft, and much lighter in style than one might expect from a wine based primarily on Cabernet, this is delicate, loosely-knit and very alluring. You'll see pretty black currant fruit and bright acidity on this fabulous Santa Barbara bottling which was aged in a combination of new and neutral French and American oak.

Belhara Estate's owner and winemaker Stephen Huse cut his teeth at big name wineries like Harlan Estate, Chateau Margaux and Mouton Rothschild prior to launching his own project.
