RATINGS

99The Wine Advocate

...scents of crushed blackberries and blueberries, tar, coffee beans, cracked pepper and thyme...full-bodied palate has a frame of grainy tannins, seamless acidity and layer after layer of spicy and floral fruit.

99Jeb Dunnuck

Black raspberries, white pepper, new saddle leather, and beautiful floral and spicy notes all soar from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, layered mouthfeel, beautiful tannins, and a great finish.

96-98Vinous / IWC

...magnificent. Rich, explosive and full of energy, the 2019 possesses tremendous aromatic intensity and remarkable presence. The 2019 is vibrant, fresh and full of life. The 43% whole clusters lend captivating aromatic intensity. Dollops of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah and Viognier round out the blend.

REGION

United States, California, Central Coast

Central Coast AVA is a huge wine producing area that extends from Santa Barbara County in the south to San Francisco in the north. With more than 100,000 vineyard acres, it includes parts of six counties near the Pacific Ocean. Nearly 20 smaller AVAs lie within the Central Coast AVA. Central Coast earned appellation status in 1985. Included in the appellation are parts of the counties of Contra Costa, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz. Nearly every grape varietal grown in California is grown somewhere in the Central Coast AVA, though Chardonnay accounts for nearly 50% of the entire wine grape crop.

TYPE

Red Wine, Grenache

One of the most popular red varieties planted, it ripens late and prefers hot dry climates. It probably originated in Spain, where it is still widely grown. Grenache is best known for its use in Southern Rhone wines, including those of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
