Ballard Canyon Mourvèdre - 2017
Like a garden as dreamed by Van Gogh. Fresh red currents, wild lavender, stalks of green peppercorns laid out in the sun.

Sashi Moorman is American wine’s Benjamin Franklin — ever experimenting, iterating, and going against the grain. And his lightning rod is cool-climate Syrah (not to mention Pinot Noir, and more recently Mourvèdre), a style he pioneered in Santa Barbara County by cultivating vineyards closer to the Pacific ocean than anyone thought possible. He also shares Franklin's worldly charms, taking his cues from the Old World, and serving as American wine's unofficial European ambassador. If you’re ever in Santa Barbara, make sure to visit the Saturday farmers' market, where Piedrasassi co-owner/baker Melissa Sorongon sells the winery's bread, which she makes from freshly milled heritage grains in a hand-built wood-fired oven.
