Ground Effect Wine Company was founded with a goal of creating varietally-honest, minimally-manipulated wines from California’s Central Coast that over-deliver for the price. Owner John Kochis has assembled a team of veteran wine growers and winemakers who help create these excellent wines. The wines have received significant acclaim from national publications, including the New York Times and Punch magazine and have become darlings with a number of the best wine stores in the country. The 80% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a number of vineyards in the Happy Canyon AVA of Santa Barbara, while the Cabernet Franc is sourced from vineyards around Solvang. The result is a wine with aromas of rich, dark berries and stone fruits with hints of herbs and spice. The flavor profile delivers full dark fruit, with depth and intensity, all balanced by medium, ripe tannins and acidity and a brightness on the finish.
