Whitcraft Santa Barbara County Elle's Vineyard Cuvee 2023

If you've ever visited a vineyard, you've likely encountered an amiable, free-ranging canine sprawled out between the vines or quietly dozing in the winemaker's shadow. This chillable red blend of Gamay, Trousseau, and Pinot Noir from Whitcraft is dedicated to the winemaker's late dog. It's a thirst-quenching homage that makes us think of long summer afternoons unspooled on the grass with our best friends.
