Kaena 2005 Hapa, Santa Ynez Valley : Go Native with this Hawaiian Winemaker in the Santa Ynez Valley

2005 Kaena Hapa (65% Grenache 20% Syrah 15 % Mourvedre)

is delicious. Plush, dark fruit ,with vibrant flavors. It was one of my favorites at Wine Country's tasting last week.

Owner/Winemaker Mikael Sigouin set out to produce the finest syrah and grenache. Read more about the story here. Kaena is the winemaker's given Hawaiian name and it translates to “potential for greatness”. Try this wine and see what you think.

This would be a great Christmas gift for a Hawaiian friend of mine.

Bringing Hawaii to the mainland. We had this at Wine Country in Los Olivos. The staff is wonderful and knowledgeable and will give you a nice recommendation for any kind of food pairing or occasion. You would be remiss to pass by Wine Country and not go in to sample the fare on any trip to the SYV.
