RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is the third edition of this single-vineyard wine, coming entirely from The Third Twin Vineyard in Los Alamos, further showcasing not only the potential of this amazing site but of this grape variety in the region. It is a blend of 89% Graciano, 6% Mourvedre and 5% Petit Sirah, employing 23% whole clusters. It was aged for 27 months in French oak, 36% new.

The 2016 The Third Twin Graciano seems to be especially well-suited to Manfred and Elaine Krankl's Three Twins site. The 2016 is another fabulous edition. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather, licorice, menthol and spice flesh out in a sumptuous, beautifully textured wine that hits all the right notes. Dollops of Mourvèdre and Petite Sirah round out the blend. The 2016 is vibrant, explosive and flat-out stunning. Wow!

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.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal and Italy are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
