Fresh & Structured
2016 feels like another step forward for this young vineyard. Showing the purity of 2014 but with more depth and mystery like 2015, this vintage makes its mark with a bit more fruit and less spice than we typically see with Drum Canyon. To articulate the nose is to do you a disservice; part of the pleasure of this wine is the time spent lingering with the aromatics, enjoying its various complexity. The mouthfeel and finish are pure, clean, well-structured and long. It’s a compelling wine that is easy to go back to, but has much more to reveal with time.
About the Winery
Dierberg Star Lane Vineyards
Founded in 1996, owners Jim and Mary Dierberg began this journey with the intent of creating World-Class wines from three different AVA’s in Santa Barbara County. The evolution of Dierberg and Star Lane Vineyards began by planting vineyards in both Santa Maria Valley and at the beautiful Star Lane Ranch in Happy Canyon. With the final addition of the Drum Canyon Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills, Jim and Mary were able to achieve their vision of harvesting and crafting unique, terroir-driven wines that capture the best of these three distinctive sites.
