• Emanuel Tres Inspirito, Santa Barbara County 2012 ($25): Chris Keller’s fertile mind produced this unlikely red wine blend: equal parts cinsault and grenache with half as much carignane. There’s both red and dark berry fruit on the nose with an underpinning of savory and spice in the background. Red cherry and raspberry seem juicy and pliant on the palate at first but then the flavors seamlessly segue to black cherry and damson plum on mid-palate, revealing a deeper and darker concentration. It’s a wine that kind of sneaks up on you and then wows you with its versatility at the table. From Santa Maria tri-tip to bacon-wrapped bleu cheese-stuffed dates, this is the ticket.

Welcome to the emanuel tres website. Thanks for stopping by.
Here’s a few notes on who we are in the wine business.
emanuel tres wines are a part of the growing emergence of the “farm to table” movement in the culinary scene in the US. Chefs rely on the best farmers, butchers, and fisherman for the best product to create their works of art helping propel their establishments to local and worldwide recognition. Similarly, emanuel tres is taking the wine scene local in Southern California, moving in a direction that could be easily be described as “vine to table”. Sourcing fruit grown at the best vineyard sites for each microclimate and varietal creates an environment to make wines simply and with structural integrity.
emanuel tres is all about the simplicity of wine made naturally; sustainable fruit, native yeasts, fermenting in the super-clean environment of stainless steel at low temperatures, finally resting in dense neutral oak barrels until blending and bottling.
The result is varietally and regionally specific wines that drink fresh and lively in their youth, but have great potential for aging.
