"The 2018 Grenache (Santa Barbara County) is a fabulous introduction to this range. Perfumed, light on its feet and ethereal, the appellation Grenache has so much character. Crushed red berry, cedar, mint and wild flowers all grace this understated, totally classy wine from Angela Osborne. This is such a beautiful wine."

"Leading off the Grenache releases, the 2018 Grenache Santa Barbara County comes from Santa Barbara County and is 100% Grenache that was destemmed and brought up in neutral oak. Pretty cherry and strawberry fruits as well as a touch of violets and spice give way to a medium-bodied Grenache with a Pinot Noir-like elegance and purity. It's a lively, balanced effort to enjoy over the coming 3-5 years."
With gracious thanks to the beautiful growing season of 2018, this wine celebrates our 6th vintage of Tuesday night grace. Representing five vastly different expressions within this climate: the Highlands with her 3200 feet elevation extremity and wide open skies (Alban and Noir clones), the Vie Caprice vineyard with 5’ x 4’ spacing amidst Santa Ynez horse country, an organically farmed haven in Happy Canyon, and the wind-swept natural amphitheater of Spear Vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills. 20% whole-cluster, 11 months in neutral barrique and puncheon, racked once under the new moon of July 2019, and bottled two weeks later.
