Grassini 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon-

This 2016 Estate Cabernet exemplifies why Happy Canyon is Santa Barbara’s premier region for growing Bordeaux varietals. This wine is rich in flavor and pulses with energy and vitality. Prominent flavors of ripe blackberry, wild blueberries are accompanied by a whisper of cocoa. Dense and concentrated, the mid-weight palate is velvety and nuanced, with a decadent, well-rounded mouthfeel.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is another standout in this range from Grassini. Sweet floral notes, new leather, menthol, licorice and spice add aromatic nuance in a plush yet mid-weight Cabernet that really captures the essence of Happy Canyon in its interplay of right fruit and more savory notes. There is terrific purity and breeding here. -Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Grassini 2020 Sauvignon Blanc-

This wine opens with aromas of fresh honeydew melon, white spring flowers, and a touch of hibiscus. Hints of papaya and freshly cut grass are balanced by a wonderfully bright minerality, with notes of flint and wet stone.

There is a strong mineral quality of wet stone that balances the aromas of guava and lemongrass on the nose of this estate bottling. The palate is lifted in acidity, with a chalky grip that frames the crisp grapefruit and pear flavors. -Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast (93 Points)

Riverbench 2017 Blanc De Blanc Cork Jumper-

This devilish little wine might just trick you into thinking you’re enjoying a French Champagne with its buttery and yeasty brioche finish. Pretty golden apple flavors meld with a hint of citrus as this classic wine evolves in the glass. Try it with a hunk of Langres cheese, a smoked salmon tartine, or the best pairing yet: fried chicken. Because bubbles make it all just a little more fun. 504 cases produced. 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast, January 2020
