In Santa Barbara tucked in the relaxed setting of the urban wine trail is a place called the Santa Barbara Wine Collective. It is a collaboration of local winemakers and a great café. This Chenin is the product of one of those winemakers, Ernst Storm, and is the reason I can now say that I love both red and white wine. Very little has been done to the wine except what was necessary to feature the characteristics of the grape. And in this nerd’s opinion, it doesn’t hurt that the vineyard used is called Jurassic Park.
