Grenache 'Santa Barbara Highlands Vyd', A Tribute to Grace

Grenache 'Santa Barbara Highlands Vyd', A Tribute to Grace
  • From one of the highest vineyards in California
  • The Santa Barbara Highlands vyd is at 3200 feet of elevation
  • Alban and Noir clones are planted here
  • This is commonly one of Angela Osborne’s lightest grenaches
  • Luminous see-through red, with scents of strawberries, turf and whole-cluster spice
  • The palate is darker, more in the vein of black raspberry, held firm by fine tannins
  • Sneakily powerful; for smoked trout and chives.
