The 2018 Grenache (Santa Barbara County) is a faboulous 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 unterstated, 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.
