Relax with a dark red wine. Made from 60% Syrah, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Alvarahao sourced and handpicked from three special vineyards in Santa Barbara County. This red blend encourages you to settle in and get comfortable.

This is our riff on the classic 'Dry Red' blend of Cab and Syrah that was pioneered in Australia. The Syrah this year is sourced from Tierra Alta Vineyard in Ballard Canyon. It’s rich and meaty... full of fleshy mid palate. The Cab is from leafy and herbal with firm tannin and currant-y acid.  There's a little bit of dark, floral Alvarahao (Portuguese grape) from Fess Parker's Rodney's Vineyard.

To make this wine, the Syrah and Cab lots are hand picked and harvested separately. In the winery, we completely de-stem the fruit and macerate on skins for 2 to 3 weeks. The wines are pressed to American Oak hogsheads (bigger barrels) that are actually coopered in Australia. The wine is aged for 20 months, Making the Time to soften and build complexity.

The result is a deeply concentrated wine full of meat, tar, vanilla bourbon-y char, crushed dark berries and licorice on the nose. The palate is rich, soft, and concentrated with blackberry, iron, and savoriness. The palate has concentrated flavor and a soft mouth feel, ripe with juicy mulberries, tart black currants, mocha, meat, and savory cedar flavors.

My Muni Fave

I’ve loved the Dark Red since the beginning of....Muni. After all of these years, it’s still my favorite. It never disappoints and is good enough for my wine snob friend from the East Coast who only drinks European wines. This is his go-to California red when visiting SB. Well, this and all reds from Potek ;)

Love this wine!

We love this wine. It's so good! Thanks, Muni, for making this wine. We drink it all year long, but it's especially nice in the colder months! It's very comforting!

I’m so glad I made the time

Tastes like wine. I like wine. Do you like wine? Make some time for this wine. It’s dark and it’s red, two qualities I like in wine.
