from j brix:
“It is with great springtime anticipation that we bring you our first release of 2015. Two of these four wines are completely new in either creation or style; the other two, new vintages of long sold-out bottlings. From the ocean floor to the desert sky, these two compelling vineyards—Kick On Ranch and Santa Barbara Highlands—span the breadth of Santa Barbara County. We look forward to sharing them with you in multicolor: this offer comes in shades of (sparkling) white; pink; orange and red.”
