One of the more refined and bold white blend offerings I’ve come across, Lot 676 is a deft harmony of 24% Marsanne, 49% Roussane, and 27% Viognier from one of California’s iconic producers of Rhône varietals. Grapes of each of the three varietals are grown in cool climate vineyards bathed in cold coastal breezes from the Pacific Coast, whole cluster pressed, and barrel aged to precise specifications before blending into sublime form right before bottling.
Santa Barbara remains one of my favorite winegrowing regions to score gems, and with good reason – the exquisite stretch of land that is Santa Barbara County is home to an embarrassment of riches when it comes to vineyard quality and winemaking talent. As both a wine consumer and industry insider, I think the quality-price ratio here is simply outstanding – at the moment, there might not be any wine producing region in California that delivers better value per dollar than Santa Barbara.
