California’s ‘Rhône Rangers’ are a dynamic group of winemakers dedicated to helping grape varieties from France’s Rhône Valley thrive in the Golden State. Thanks to their efforts, you’ll find top-quality Rhône-style wines across California – and this is a fine example from the Golden State’s fantastic 2016 vintage.

Named for the sloping Santa Ynez Valley vineyards in which the grapes grew, Côtes d’Ynez marries red-fruited Grenache (51%), deep Mourvèdre (42%), and berry-filled Syrah (7%). Showing all the fruit-rich charm of the excellent harvest, it brims with ripe, dark berry flavor and smooth tannins from gentle oak aging.

Perfect for a bowl of meaty pork stew or a game meat feast – this one’s a real crowd-pleaser!
