2020 is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, and 5% white grapes (Grenache Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Semillon).
It has also spent longer in barrel than previous releases, 16 months this go around. We've found that Subliminal is at its best with longer barrel aging, as the aromatics and texture develop in really beautiful directions, and the wine ends up feeling much more complete. This is a wine that is clearly in the Bordeaux family, yet which expresses itself in a singular way. Consider it a thoughtful person's glou glou, or perhaps Cabernet that's been cultivating its contemplative side.
We are Cameron and Marlen Porter, a husband and wife team born and raised in Santa Barbara County. The exploration, and elevation, of our growing region has been our life's work. We first bonded over a shared love for wine and music, and Amplify is a natural extension of this marriage between our two greatest passions. As winemakers, we seek to amplify the voice of site and enhance the most singular characteristics of a given vineyard, marrying a sense of place with a sense of style. We believe in: native yeast fermentations; neutral vessels for fermentation and aging; no additions of any kind except for minimum effective sulfur dioxide; and farming that seeks to establish a healthy ecosystem, enhancing and supporting the natural characteristics of a given place. We embrace the happy accident, letting intuition guide our hand, with our creative spirit and palates as our primary tools. Thank you for joining us on our winemaking journey.– Cameron, Marlen, and Miles Porter.
