Standing Sun GSM


Standing Sun Santa Barbara County GSM 2010: This essentially equal, one-third-each breakdown between syrah from Clover Creek Vineyard and grenache and mourvedre from Camp Four combines into a lean-ish but flavorful blend with cocoa, chalk, violet, and boysenberry elements all present. It’s easy and refreshing to drink but layered with aromas and flavors to ponder for much longer than the bottle will last.

Standing Sun is the Buellton-based project from the husband-and-wife team of winemaker John Wright and soap opera star Laura Wright. Their story is the basis of the pilot episode for the new television program “Taste Life,” a premiere of which will go down on Thursday, October 24, 6 p.m., at 240 Studio near the Funk Zone.
