91 points - Wine Enthusiast

Our Ineseño (the name refers to people native to Santa Ynez) is a blend of 70% roussanne and 30% viognier.  The wine layers bright citrus tones and stone fruit, from lemon curd and orange blossom to apricot and doughnut peach.  All complemented by nice spicy nutmeg notes along with fennel pollen, honeycomb, and hazelnut.  The wine is aged using 20% new French oak barrels for the roussanne, and large format barrels (400L) to preserve the freshness of viognier, as well as a mix of stainless steel and neutral French oak. The wine ages for 10 months before blending to tank and then bottling.

* The three whimsical figures on the Ineseño label are the Gleason women - Niki flanked by her daughters, Callie and Mara, as they stroll through the vineyard.

Technical Information:

Soil Types: 
Linne Clay Loam - this whitish gray soil contains limestone pieces beginning 18”-24” below the surface.  The presence of limestone captures and preserves the freshness in this wine, and being a heavier soil lends itself to a rounder mouthfeel.
Mocho Loam - this sandy, alluvial soil is fine-grained, fertile and deposited by water flowing from the Santa Ynez River.  Due to their sandy nature, there is little water retention in these soils which creates higher aromatics and density in the fruit.

as a rhone varietal fan i was hoping for a solid wine and was blown away by the length and breadth of this wine. awesome with spice, killer with pork, i made some Pinot fans drink it blind and they flipped!
