More about this wine from Santa Maria, CA
This wine hails from the Santa Maria Valley, just north of Santa Barbara and slightly inland from California's central coast - but close enough to the ocean for the salty morning fog to roll in over the vineyards. The main ingredient in this red blend is Merlot, a varietal that has gotten a bad rap in recent years thanks to being trashed in the movie Sideways, but this bottle gives the grape a new chance to shine!

Smashberry has the ability to warm your soul and and make you feel like you are wearing a XXL fleece sweatshirt before it has been washed. Stewed Smucker’s blueberry jam and cacao nibs notes give it a lavish mouthfeel, as if you were eating a Big Mac made of silk. This is a perfect wine for springtime showers, settling in front of the fire with a hearty meal.
