Produced from vineyards in Ballard Canyon, Santa Ynez Valley, York Mountain, and Los Alamos Valley, the Workman/Ayer 2011 ‘De Facto’ Red Wine is a classic Rhone inspired blend of 75% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, and 10% Grenache (also known as a ‘GSM’). Dense, layered, and focused with considerable depth, this vivacious wine has earthy notes of dark berries, spice, herbs, and cedar. This red blend beautifully balances the intense, structured Syrah with the berry spice flavors of Grenache and the tannic, dark notes of Mourvedre.
