This wine comes from a small block at Ibarra-Young planted in the late 90’s. This block has been farmed organically since inception, and what's growing on the understory throughout the year is proof. This block is covered in native purple lupine in the springtime, and transitions to the later blooming native Spanish lotus in the early summer. The floor is consistently covered in dainty pink and purple flowers for the majority of the growing season. We don’t sow these seeds, they are native to the Santa Ynez watershed and are what have been growing on this land since the Chumash inhabited the area. The lupine and native lotus have made a striking comeback since the vineyard’s no till transition in Spring of 2019. The spring of 2023 was an exceptionally great season for the native lupine on the land!

More Info

Of all the grapes we tend at Ibarra-Young, Graciano tends to have the most acidity, thus it was destined to become rosé. These grapes were brought into the cellar around 20.2B and were foot stomped to macerate on their skins. After about 4 hours of skin maceration, the grapes were lightly pressed. The juice settled for one night and was racked to neutral French oak for fermentation with its native yeast. The rosé rested on its fermentation lees throughout elevage in the same vessels and was bottled unfined and unfiltered on March 18, 2024.

Tasting Notes

Bright, red, fresh, juicy. Not your provincial style rose! With a delicate entry and a kiss of herbal tones on the finish, this wine will keep you coming back for more. She is mildly textured, herbal, fruit forward, and layered in all the best ways. Delicious on her own or with some light bites. Enjoy chilled just about anywhere at any time!

  • about the label

    Art: The purple lupine on the front is painted by my thoughtful mother, Eileen Anderson. These lupine are native to the field where this block was planted and have been here since the Chumash inhabited the land. They are native nitrogen fixers and food for pollinators making them a really important species at Ibarra-Young. The little lamb on the back was born in the Graciano in spring of 2020. I named her Charlotte after the woman who first tended this land, Charlotte Young.
