91 points, Wine Enthusiast - Densely opaque, deep garnet glinting in the glass. Aromas of raspberry and violet tangle with baking spice, anise and caramel. Cocoa, nutmeg and rounded, restrained tannins tease the palate in a long, toasty finish.
Our wines are thoughtfully crafted under the direction of veteran winemaker Paul Hobbs. Paul is highly regarded for his ability to identify exceptional vineyards and for his pioneering spirit in working with new and historical sites and regions. He’s been twice named Wine Personality of the Year by Robert Parker, Jr. and is considered one of the world’s preeminent winemakers.
Josh’s love of wine led him first into a career as a sommelier, culminating in a 2004 Wine Spectator Grand Award for the wine list at Sona Restaurant in Los Angeles. After working closely with some of the Central Coast’s trailblazing winemakers, including Jim Clendenen and Bob Lindquist, Josh founded the critically acclaimed La Fenêtre Wines in Santa Barbara County. Crafting modern wines in a variety of styles, Josh is constantly honing his winemaking technique. He brings this passion and drive to producing wines from the quality, estate grown fruit of Brave & Maiden.
