Lieu Dit Chenin Blanc Santa Ynez Valley 2014: As
pedigrees go, it’s hard to beat a super-somm and an up-and-coming
winemaker. Meet Eric Railsback — who’s been part of the team at Les
Marchands, Mattei’s, and Wine Cask (and that’s just his work around
here) — and Justin Willett, who started at Arcadian and runs Tyler
Winery. Of all things, they are most interested in grapes from France’s
Loire Valley, hence this tasty pour.
