K&L Notes

While researching places to visit on our Central Coast trip, I came across Rusack Vineyards, tucked away in Ballard Canyon. I knew absolutely nothing about the property, winemaker or the wines, but seeing as they were surrounded on all sides by some of the best producers in the region (Jonata, Stolpman, Larner) I figured they warranted further research. A quick browse around the website yielded some interesting results. The winery makes a range of wines, including some from their “home” estate vineyard in Ballard Canyon, and others sourced from some of the very best growers in the broader Santa Barbara County (Solomon Hills, Bien Nacido Fiddlestix, Vogelzang, etc) and perhaps most intriguingly, some wines from a second estate vineyard, El Rancho Escondido, on Santa Catalina Island! We had to check these wines out! Fast forward a few weeks and our crew is climbing out of Bruce the Dad Van (our rented minivan if you missed the intro) at 9 a.m. sharp outside Rusack’s winery and tasting room in Ballard Canyon. We’re greeted cheerfully by winemaker Steve Gerbac and dive right into tasting wines under the lovely porch in the front of the tasting room. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L Domestic buyer)

    The day before our Rusack visit we had extensively tasted some of the most highly regarded Chardonnays in the region (Tyler, Sandhi, The Hilt, Deovlet). Yet this wine more than held its own. Classic drive and racy quality from the cool sea breezes, lovely spiced orchard fruit, quince, nectarine. Lovely weight and density but never loses focus.
