December Wine Post: Baby Girl has arrived and all is well

It's been quite a while since this space has been updated but I do have two great adventures for tommorrow if you choose to accept them. Drive up to Santa Barbara and stop by Jaffurs to try Jaffurs Cellarmaster and Tasting Room Manager, Matt Brady's winemaking introduction.

The 2006 "Grandaddy Grenache" is the debut release from vino sapien wine co and will be served Saturday 13th 11-5pm at Jaffurs Wine Tasting Room in Santa Barbara. 819 E. Montecito St Santa Barbara

"The 2006 “Granddaddy Grenache” is the debut release from vino sapien wine company. vino sapien (“wise wine”) productions are inspired and dedicated to personally significant people in my life. This ultra-small lot was sourced from Thompson Vineyard in Los Alamos, and barrel aged 19 months. This wine explodes with candied cherries, cola, cinnamon and nutmeg spice, complex palate flavors and a silky smooth mouth feel, with a long drawn out finish. Grapes were hand farmed and old-world techniques were used in making this wine. Only 48 cases produced. " -From Jaffurs Newsletter.

My husband and I made our first wine adventure up to Santa Ynez with our new little girl last week and managed to stop by Foxen for our wine club shipment. Everything they were pouring was great but I really enjoyed the 2007 Pinot Noir and the 2005 Happy Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon. No tasting notes yet, since I'm still learning to sip with an 8 week old in tow.
We also hit up the Buttonwood Pomegranate Fest and tasted some 2005 Cab Franc at Wine Country in Los Olivos. Tim Duggan and Graham Palmer's debut wine. Stop by to try some!
