2018 Grant Grenache
Angela Osborne x Folded Hills Library Wine

‚Äč93 PTS & EDITOR'S CHOICE - WINE ENTHUSIAST

"The 2018 Grenache Grant is gorgeous. A wine of total understatement and class, the Grant is a terrific expression of Santa Barbara. Hints of rose petal and spice lift a core of varietal red-toned fruit in this wonderfully nuanced, translucent Grenache." 93 PTS - VINOUS, ANTONIO GALLONI

Our Grant Grenache takes its name not only from Grant’s Farm, our ancestral home, but also from President Ulysses S. Grant, who was its original Farmsteader. The 2018 Grant Grenache is made from our estate-grown grapes, with a small portion of Syrah to add another layer of depth and flavor. Grower Ruben Solorzano meticulously farms the site.

Winemaker Angela Osborne selects the optimum picking time for each site, sourcing from three contrasting blocks of Folded Hills Grenache. She then carefully de-stems the fruit. Fermentation is done naturally with only ambient yeast. The fruit is gently foot-tread to maintain the health of the fermentation and to integrate the vibrant characteristics of the de-stemmed fruit with the whole clusters. It is then aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, with only 4% new included, to enhance texture and depth in the wine without overwhelming the subtlety of Grenache. After aging, the wine is bottled to preserve freshness and purity of flavor.

Bursting with high-tone red fruit, this wine presents juicy raspberry and strawberry jam alongside fresh cherry.

Pretty strawberry and cherry fruits as well as floral and sappy flower notes emerge from the glass, and it's lightly textured, elegant, and silky on the palate, with fine yet present tannins.

Pale color, tastes of strawberry jam. Smooth. Lush body with sour cherry cream pie flavor.
