Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JD 95
Jeb Dunnuck
Coming from an ocean-influenced site in the Santa Maria Valley, the 2017 Grenache Ora Et Labora offers more black raspberry, cassis, crushed stone, and seaside, sea breeze-like hints as well as plenty of violets and flowery incense notes. Medium to full-bodied, it has the classic Bien Nacido structure, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Where the Lumiere Larner Vineyard is all about elegance and charm, this is more burly, masculine and structured.

"From my experience of tasting the finest wines from around the world, I believe in harmony and elegance. These are the qualities I constantly try to capture in my wines. The ultimate goal is to create wines that are seamless and textural, with the structure and balance to complement fine cuisine.

In order to make wines of the highest caliber, I select unique vineyards that are cared for by talented vineyard managers. During the growing season, yields are restricted to achieve maximum concentration of flavor. Harvest is based on physiological ripeness, which changes depending on the vintage characteristics.

Cellar work is based on minimal intervention, cleanliness and purity of intention. Because every vintage is different, I do not believe in recipes. With due respect to science, I do believe that true artisanal winemaking is based on intuition, sensitivity and passion. Keeping lots small allows gentle handling throughout the winemaking process.

I want my wines to give pleasure and keep your palate interested until the last drop from the bottle - I hope you like them at first sip and love them at the last." ~ Winemaker Paul Lato

A lesser-known but elite AVA within the larger Santa Barbara district, the Santa Maria Valley AVA runs precisely west to east starting near the coast. The valley funnels cool, Pacific Ocean air to the vineyards more inland, allowing grapes a longer hang time to ripen evenly and achieve their full potential by harvest time. Combined with minimal rainfall, consistent warm sunshine, and well-drained soils, it is an ideal environment for grape growing.

Many of the wineries here are small and highly respected, having established a reputation in the 1970s and 80s for producing excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. More recently, Syrah has also proven quite successful in the region. Many vineyards are owned by growers who sell their grapes to other wineries, so it is common to see the same vineyard name on bottlings from different wineries. Bien Nacido Vineyard is perhaps the best-known and most prestigious.

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.
