Description

In 1989 the Fess Parker family embarked on an adventure in the wine business in Santa Barbara County. Our original goals remain the same to this day: to create wines of the highest quality and to build a multi-generational family business. Twenty-five years later we have succeeded in consistently crafting wines of great critical acclaim while remaining entirely family owned and operated, with the added benefit of having establishing many friendships along the way. We are proud of these accomplishments and look forward to sharing our wines with you for many decades to come.

The nose of this wine is captivating, with unstoppable notes of black pepper, smoke, blueberry, blackberry, lavendar and dried tobacco. On the palate, look for a profile rich in dark chocolate, black cherry, blackberry, plum, smoked meats and vanilla notes.
