Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: There is never a shortage of power when imbibing a Central Coast Grenache, and indeed the 2014 Lost Blues High Horse is a big red. TASTING NOTES: This is an impressive and powerful wine that is well-balanced. Its aromas and flavors of explosive raspberries speak loudly on the palate. Its generosity should pair well with a crisp Porchetta. (Tasted: August 3, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Lost Blues, Central Coast, California
Image of winery
I began working with wine as a teenager at Meridian Vineyards as a seasonal laborer. I operated the crushpad, dumping truckloads of fruit all day long with a 7-ton hoist and pulley. It was about the coolest thing I had ever done. I was instantly hooked, both on wine and the work involved in making it. I stayed there for a few years, learning everything I could, operating every piece of equipment, and gaining a true love for forklifts. I then went on to work for a few smaller wine producers, continuing to learn on the job and constantly furthering my wine education through drinking, reading, and taking classes and seminars.

Many harvests and wineries later, I crossed paths with Russell From of Herman Story Wines and we became friends. In 2011 I began working for him, and am now his Assistant Winemaker. Working for Russell and being a part of Herman Story helped me realize that my dream of making my own wines was attainable. And in 2012 Lost Blues was born.

Central Coast

View all wine

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast 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 Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.

Grenache

View all wine

Full-bodied but light in both color and tannin, Grenache loves the sun. It thrives in hot climates where it can easily achieve full ripeness. Grenache is best known in the Southern Rhône, where its plush texture and ample alcohol are tamed by savory Syrah and structured Mourvèdre, most notably in Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Grenache originates in Spain, where it is known as Garnacha and is important throughout the country, particularly in Rioja, where it is blended with the more austere Tempranillo, and in Priorat in tandem with savory Cariñena (Carignan). It is also responsible for dry, fruity rosés in Navarra. In Sardinia, the variety is known as Cannonau and produces bold, rustic reds. In California, Grenache has achieved popularity both flying solo and playing a supporting role in Rhône-style blends.

In the Glass

In sufficiently warm conditions, Grenache produces smooth and generous wines that are loaded with red fruit flavors ranging from strawberry to cherry to dark berry. Richer examples can also show plum, chocolate, and licorice.

Perfect Pairings

Despite its bold flavors, Grenache has very mild-mannered tannins, which makes it eminently quaffable on its own, yet easy to match with food. With its uncomplicated, friendly nature, Grenache is the ultimate barbecue red, pairing happily with lamb loin chops or spicy Italian sausages. Unlike most other full-bodied reds, Grenache’s low tannin level ensures that it will not be fazed by a good chili kick.

Sommelier Secret

Sardinia’s Cannonau is often revered for its association with a long, healthy life. Residents of the Italian island often live well into their 90s and beyond, and they credit this antioxidant-rich wine—along with their healthy Mediterranean diet—for their impressive longevity.
