What it is: Vibrant Watch Hill Grenache and dark Sta. Rita Hills Syrah are complemented by unctuous Petit Verdot, a bit of statuesque Happy Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon, and plenty of voluptuous Watch Hill Roussanne - as usual, a kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors from all corners of the Santa Ynez Valley, and in this case with the epic energy of the 2020 vintage..

What it’s like: that person whom you’ve fantasized meeting much of your life pulls up the bar stool next to you and says “hello”, Johnny Cash-style, “how’s your day going”? Nervously fixing your hair you think
“well shit, a hell of a lot better now...where’ve you been all my bloody life?...let’s get married and start a new one together”...but you know that slow is better, so you say “I’m good, how are you?”, Betty Davis- style.

Food: As always, the idea behind Optimist is maximum flexibility. This time of year, Optimist’s forward nature would love a Bolognese or mushroom ragout pasta, or one of those epic mortadella sandwiches with the fried egg on top, plus a salad; in the summer, with the top down, just a well-prepared picnic, or a million-dollar burger
