Graciano Santa Barbara County - 2021
Frequency was born from the belief that positive energy can be created, bottled, and shared throughout the world to be sown and harvested for a vast influence. Pulling inspiration from many creative forms, winemaker Zac Wasserman has been slowly growing his label from the original duo of GSM blend and the Artist Series blend. Wasserman started Frequency in 2010, while working with the Santa Barbara County Syrah master, Joey Tensley. Given a little time and space to pursue his own label, Wasserman has honed a style of wine that is his own. The line of wines now includes a Graciano, as well as a limited production of single-site Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs. This south-facing site in Los Alamos is oriented to reach ripeness in every vintage. Inky purple as always, blackberry bramble, and silky taught tannins.
