Winemaker Notes

The 2017 A Tribute to Grace Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard Grenache exudes a flavor profile of sandalwood, copal and rosewater.

Critical Acclaim

JD 92
Jeb Dunnuck
One of the more ruby-colored wines in the lineup, the 2017 Grenache Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard has a Pinot Noir-like bouquet of candied cherries, ground herbs, dried earth, and Asian spices. Made in a medium-bodied, ethereal style, with plenty of polished tannins, it's elegant and offers plenty of richness and depth, solid mid-palate density, and a great finish. Give it a year and drink it over the coming 7-8 years.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
From one of the highest vineyards in California, this is commonly one of Angela Osborne’s lightest grenaches. It’s a luminous see-through red, with scents of strawberries, turf and whole-cluster spice. The flavors are darker, more in the vein of black raspberry, held firm by fine tannins. Sneakily powerful; for smoked trout and chives.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Multilayered and well-built, with expressive cherry, spicy cinnamon and tarragon flavors that build tension toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2024.

A Tribute To Grace Wine Company is dedicated to crafting authentic expressions of Grenache. All wines are single-vineyard sourced to maintain authenticity, and remain 100% Grenache.

Angela Osborne is a New Zealand born winemaker who moved to California in 2006 with the dream of making Grenache. In the land from which she stems, the climate is too cool to ripen this sun-loving beauty. And so began her search: northern Spain, southern France, southern Australia, California...

Abundant sunshine and entrepreneurial spirit led Angela to the latter, and in 2007 she sourced her first Grenache fruit from the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard. Nestled high above the Pacific Ocean and 33 miles inland, this high-desert vineyard provided the perfect balance of heat and light that was sought. Angela named her label after two of her favorite things: her Grandmother Grace and her most beloved attribute. Angela's winemaking intention is to capture this spirit, and stay as close to nature as humanly possible. The trio is completed by the grape itself, which to me encapsulates grace.

With a dry and mild climate cooled significantly by moist ocean fog and breezes, Santa Barbara County is a grape-grower’s dream. Part of the larger Central Coast appellation, Santa Barbara is home to Santa Maria Valley and Santa Ynez Valley. The conditions here provide an opportunity for nearly effortless production of high-quality cool-climate wines. This is also the site of the 2004 film Sideways, which caused Pinot Noir’s popularity to skyrocket and brought new acclaim to the region.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the stars of Santa Barbara, producing wines marked by racy acidity. Crisp Sauvignon Blanc and savory Syrah are also important. The region is home to many young and enthusiastic winemakers eager to experiment with less common varieties including Chenin Blanc, Grüner Veltliner, Trousseau Gris, Gamay and Cabernet Franc, making it an exciting area to watch.

Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. While Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha), today it is more recognized as the key player in the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its villages. Somm Secret—The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic, single varietal Grenache (there called Cannonau). California, Washington and Australia have achieved found success with Grenache, both flying solo and in blends.
