Barnwood Vineyards

Barnwood Vineyards Barnwood Vineyards is a pioneer in the development of high elevation vineyards in eastern Santa Barbara County. At an altitude of 3,200 feet, it is unique among the regions of the world where wine grapes are produced. Although grapes have been grown in this small area for over 15 years, it is only recently that the region’s commercial potential has been discovered for the production Bordeaux and Rhone varietals. Located in eastern Santa Barbara County (near Ojai, CA), Barnwood’s unique mountain terroir offers diverse growing conditions suitable to a wide array of varietals. High desert temperatures are countered by cool afternoon breezes that meander along the path of the dormant Cuyama Riverbed, which divides the valley as it runs towards the Pacific Ocean, approximately 30 miles from the coast. Durng the growing season, daily temperatures can fluctuate by 50 degrees. This climate, combined with well-drained gravelly and sandy loam soils, contributes to the intense character and flavors found in wines produced from the estate.

Lively and crisp, this light gold wine has aromas of citrus and fresh herbs. Grapefruit and mango flavors and a hint of herbaceous undertones fill the mid-palate leading to a clean and refreshing finish. The 2003 Sauvignon Blanc is great served with appetizers or matched with grilled fish and various seafood dishes.

A lovely black cherry red with tawny accents, the Barnwood Trio is a distinctly layered wine just beginning its journey. This intriguing blend has an eclectic nose of cappuccino and mint complimented by dried raspberry, nutmeg and cinnamon. On the palate, flavors of cedar, chocolate and cranberries with slightly angular tannins finishes with strong fruit, subtle spice and the lingering promise of growing complexity. This wine can be enjoyed alone or can complement any dish.

Alluring armoas of blackberry raspberry, pomegranate, and dark chocolate are reflected on the papate of this will focused, spicy red. Crisp acidity, coupled with firm, well integrated tannins and generous fruit make "Untamed" one wild ride of flavor. Virtually bulletproof, this wine drinks well now but will continue to improve with age over the next 15 years.
