Ravie is a blend of Grenache from Alisos Canyon, Syrah from Coquelicot VIneyard, and Mourvèdre from Martian Ranch Vineyard in Alisos Canyon. A fun and probably atypical expression of a Santa Barbara County GSM. The word ‘ravie’ translates to the feminine version of ‘delighted’ in French. I giggle a little reminiscing on learning French during my time in France. I learned a very rustic version of French while working in the countryside and when I would go down to the south of France to visit my friends and chat with them, or worse, their parents, they would completely cringe at the inappropriate French I would confidently say in my silly American accent. Anyway, they tried their best to present me with a more polite vocabulary. This wine is an ode to all of the good laughs we’ve had together while speaking each other's native tongues.

More Info

The Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre were harvested and fermented separately with different percentages of the whole cluster. All of the components were pressed in the basket press and aged separately in neutral French oak until about a month before bottling. At that time, the final blend was made. Ravie rested as its final blend for about a month in the tank before being bottled unfined and unfiltered in July 2024. The final blend is 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre - finishing about 75% whole cluster.

Tasting Notes

Red punch, crunchy stem, and fresh white cherries with a little structure to make it complete. It's like hiking in the woods on a hot day with a picnic of freshly cut red fruits in your cooler. Chill it down for a refreshing quench after a hot day of working outside, or sip it for the first red on a night out with people you love. She’ll go anywhere and everywhere.

  • about the label

    My mom, Eileen Anderson, painted the fairly unrealistic yet charming representation of Calypte Anna perched on a vine. Although Anna’s hummingbirds are quite common around coastal California, they are hard to spot! Partly because the females are way less flashy than this stud of a guy on the front of the Ravie label, but also because they need a good variety of flowers to feed on and nest around. Anna’s hummingbirds are also known for munching on leafhoppers, so if you plant manzanita, currant, and flowering chaparral around your vineyard rows, it could be a happy combination for your vines, too! The painting on the back label depicts a variety of native flowers I painted. Clarkia, tidy tips, fiddleneck, and the mariposa poppy are all fairly common flowers found in the Santa Ynez watershed.
