Featured Winery: Rancho Sisquoc

image of grape leafRed Meritage Wines
These delicious blends must consist of two or more of the red Bordeaux varieties,  Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. The result is a smooth, silky and a very easy to drink red wine that can be enjoyed sooner than later.
91 Points - Rancho Sisquoc "Cellar Select" Meritage

image of grape leafRancho Sisquoc Winery produces a magnificent meritage wine  from Santa Barbara County. We think this is one of the best tasting red wines produced in California, especially for the price! This red wine is loaded with ripe black cherry, vanilla flavors and finishes with raspberry and spice flavors. The wine was aged for 28 months in French oak and a bargain for under $30 a bottle. The blend is 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 17% Petit Verdot, 15% Malbec, and 10% Cab Franc. Rancho Sisquoc produced only about 500 cases. Their 2007 will be released around March or April, but you might be fortunate to find a few 2006 vintage at Whole Foods market and other specialty wine shops.
