2013 SANS LIEGE “THE OFFERING” RED BLEND (SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, CA)
It’s not surprising that a California winemaker on a “relentless search for independence” would find himself in regions like Paso Robles, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Ynez. These newer California wine regions are known for breaking all the rules. What’s so great about Sans Liege, and winemaker Curt Schalchlin, is that rule-breaking is steeped in respect for what came before. These wines take the best of the Rhône Valley and re-imagine it for a new generation of wine drinkers.
