    Winemaker Notes

    Originally planted in 1964, the Uriel J. Nielson Vineyard is the oldest wine grape vineyard in Santa Barbara County. It lies in the warmer, eastern most section of the Santa Maria Valley, where the slight increase in temperature suits Syrah and Grenache well. This vintage combines Nielson Grenache with Mourvedre from Thompson Vineyard, which was originally planted in 1991. Both of these vineyards play a significant role in the history of Central Coast Wine production as their founders are considered two of the pioneers of the Santa Barbara County wine region. The 2011 is the first 100% whole cluster fermented Law of Return ever made - a classic, old-world winemaking style which elevates the aromatics and body of this wine.

    Blend: 85% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre

    Autonom, California
    Grape grower James Ontiveros and winemaker Paul Wilkins are creating some amazing Rhone inspired wines for Autonom. California’s Central Coast is their playground and they’re making splendor from these vineyards. Diving headlong into this project they admit “we didn’t test the water with one toe – we jumped in.” Playing up their strengths all the way through, Autonom is pure hedonistic delight... in fact, when we first encountered their wines a few years back we snatched it up in a matter of seconds. We’ll wager that your love affair with Autonom will be just as amorous.

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    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.
