TASTING NOTES        
Beautiful nose of sweet plums, blueberry cobbler, sour cherries, and orange peel, with subtle hints of dried oats, grain and habanero. Light on the palate with raspberry leather, ripe Bing cherries, figs, and custard brulée, finishing with blackberries, sage, anise and tobacco leaves.
 
WINEMAKING
Fruit for our 2018 “GSM” blend come from six different vineyards across Santa Barbara County, including the Sunstone Estate vineyard. The wine varietals were aged separately in 20% new and 80% neutral American oak and blended and bottled to 821 cases in March 2020.
 
FOOD PAIRING
Our Rapsodie blend is always a fun, everyday drinking wine that pairs perfectly with anything you’re having…or any day of the week. Try this with braised lamb shank, a Moroccan tagine, or other spicy stews. Works really well with barbecued chicken and grilled sausage.
 
CELLARING     
The 2018 Rapsodie can be enjoyed now and for up to an additional 4-6 years if stored in proper conditions.
