We love this because...

Hailing from the Happy Canyon (I like to think of it as a bigger Happy Valley) region of Santa Barbara this wine is like diving head-first into a pool of freshly picked blackcurrants. It has remarkable purity of fruit flavour and a fine tannic structure that makes it ideal to enjoy slightly chilled.
