Smooth & Structured
This coastal cab is a must in your collection, a stunningly silky and elegant expression. Nuances on the nose and palate show black fruit and lots of florality, blackcurrant, char, espresso violets and plum, with that signature coastal sage herbaceousness and spice on the finish. An incredibly balanced textured mouthfeel that has a surprising freshness while still holding lots of body. This wine is ready to drink now and shows deep complexities already and can also age in your cellar for upwards of two decades. Awarded 92 points by Wine Enthusiast and praised for its ability to be strong yet elegant. 2014 is a vintage with little rain, warm springs and a modest summer, this vintage is a standout of the winemakers for its restraint and freshness with Happy Canyon’s signature barrel aging adding warmth, roundness and a bit of oak.
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.
