2018 Brave & Maiden Union Red Blend Santa Ynez Valley
Brave & Maiden Estate takes their name from the “Legend of Nojoqui” (pronounced Naw-ho-wee), an indigenous incarnation of Romeo & Juliet. Set at the nearby Nojoqui Falls, the legend recounts the story of star-crossed lovers who choose death over separation. Inspired by such profound dedication, the winery has committed themselves to crafting the most exquisite wines they can produce.
Since 2011, Union is Brave & Maiden’s propietary stellar red blend offering. The classic Rhône varietal, Syrah, finds a unique expression in this blend with traditional grapes of Bordeaux: Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Together, they form a wine that not only exhibits the best of our vineyard, but is representative of the varietal strengths of the Santa Ynez Valley.
