A Tribute to Grace, Rosé of Grenache, 2020
Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard, California
Winemaker Angela Osborne connects deeply with this single vineyard old-vine Grenache grown at 3200ft. and uses biodynamic principles to convert the energy of the land into this graceful rosé. Angela foot treads the whole-cluster fruit before fermentation and to extract color for this Rosé, packed with delicate floral and stone fruit flavors with bright acidity and an herbal, anise-tinged finish.
A very pale shade of pink in the glass, this bottling begins with aromas of rose petal, honeydew and wet slate. The palate is extremely tense and grippy—like licking stones and seashells, as flavors of red apple and rose petal float toward the finish.
