Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 94
The clear standout in this range, Angela Osborne's 2017 Grenache Vie Caprice Vineyard is bright, focused, and wonderfully nuanced, with terrific freshness and tons of sheer verve. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. This brisk, finely sketched Grenache is bursting at the seams with vibrancy and character. I loved it.

Jeb Dunnuck

Cherries, strawberries, white flowers, and hints of sappy herbs all emerge from the 2017 Grenache Vie Caprice Vineyard, another ethereal, elegant, yet structured wine. Lightly colored, yet nicely textured and balanced, it's going to benefit from a year in bottle. This cuvée is all Grenache that was 56% destemmed and aged 11 months in 9% new French oak.

Rating: 91(+?)

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Spirited cherry, white pepper and wild flower aromas lead to tightly focused flavors that build density toward fine-grained tannins. Best after 2020.

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Light and spicy, with a scent of wild strawberries and a mildly bitter hint of herbs, this wine is lean and angular. The berry flavors deepen to cherry and tobacco with air. Chill it lightly for a turkey breast with roasted mushrooms.

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.

Ranging from cool and foggy in the west to warm and dry in the east, the Santa Ynez Valley is a climatically diverse growing area. The most expansive AVA within the larger Santa Barbara County region, Santa Ynez is also home to a wide variety of soil types and geographical features. The appellation is further divided into four distinct sub-AVAs—Sta. Rita Hills, Ballard Canyon, Los Olivos District and Happy Canyon—each with its own defining characteristics.

A wide selection of grapes is planted here—more than sixty different varieties, and counting. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir dominate in the chilly west, while Zinfandel, Rhône blends, and Bordeaux blends rule the arid east. Syrah is successful at both ends of the valley, with a lean and peppery, Old-World sensibility closer to the coast and lush berry fruit further inland.

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.
