SANTA BARBARA COUNTY

The 2016 Grenache carries on our tradition of producing focused, intriguing Grenaches that taste great upon release, but also evolve with age. Ruby red in color and medium weight. Aromatics of raspberry, cherry-cola, bramble, plum and dried flowers.  Partial stem inclusion through the fermentation provides texture and spice. Aged in used barrels for 10 months, this wine highlights the purity of the Grenache grape, and is a great companion with a wide range of foods.

2015 Grenache, Santa Barbara County
Wine Enthusiast  94 Points

The nose on this countywide blend is extremely elegant and lovely, with light rose petals, pressed black plums and crushed violets. There's a tremendously grippy texture to the sip, providing a pure tension that delivers flavors of purple fruit and rosewater. It's a testament to the versatility of the variety.

Vinous  91 Points

A delicious, appellation-level wine, the 2015 Grenache (Santa Barbara County) is bright, floral and perfumed, with quite a bit of aromatic lift from the 50% whole clusters. This is an especially weightless, gracious wine for the vintage. The understated, silky finish only adds to its considerable appeal.

2014 Grenache, Santa Barbara County
Wine Enthusiast  92 Points

Concentrated strawberry, black licorice and earthy loam scents waft in elegant waves of aroma in this bottling. There is a compelling density to the palate, where black and red plum peel flavors meet with rhubarb, beetand spicy root beer touches.
