Lieu Dit, Santa Ynez Valley Malbec 2016Regular price $35.00 Save $-35.00
This wine is a collaboration of Eric Railsback and Justin Willet, both big names in the international wine scene and longtime friends unified by wine. Eric and Justin both had incredible resumes and ultimately joined forces after their Santa Barbara wine group spurred this decision. Lieu Dit, as a word, translates to "a small geographical area bearing a traditional name. The name usually refers to some characteristic of the place, its former use, a past event, etc." This concept is the whole idea of these wines from Santa Barbara, though with a focus on varieties grown in the Loire Valley.
This Malbec comes from one of Lieu Dit’s home vineyards, the Happy Canyon Vineyard in Santa Ynez Valley situated in Santa Barbara. The wine spends time in neutral barrels over the winter.
