The Tepusquet vineyard is part of the Jackson familys holdings in the Santa Maria Valley, in the Santa Barbera district. This is very impressive and dedicated wine-making, hand harvested and elevated with 28% new oak, resulting is a compote of black fruits and spice tinged mocha. Great with baby back ribs.
