If you love serious, concentrated, deeply textured and powerfully structured Napa Cabernet Sauvignon - then wander on down to the Canyon and get Happy!  Winemaker Xavier Xavier Arnaudin crafts seven barrels (165 cases) of this powerful, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Star Lane vineyard in Santa Barbara's Happy Canyon.  Grown at nearly 2,000 feet elevation, the vines benefit from plenty of sunshine and warm mornings for ripeness and then rapidly cooling breezes from the Pacific Ocean every afternoon.  Aging in 100% new French oak gives the wine shape and spice, but the fruit just will not be covered in wood.

Classic Napa-like aromas of black currant, blackberry, sweet spice, crushed herb and dark chocolate pump out of the glass from first pour and get deeper and richer with air.  On the palate, the wine is focused, concentrated, and muscular with intense black fruit (currant, plum, berry) dusted with cocoa powder and complicated by a layer of spice.  It's a big wine, but stays amazingly fresh through the long, firmly tannic, ripe fruit and dark chocolate finish.  Amazingly, this has no acid added in the winery - this unique site and careful winemaking delivers fantastic freshness to go with full-bodied power.  Delicious now, better from 2020 and great through 2030 or so.
