2014 Grenache - Santa Cruz Mountains - Bates Ranch


Why is this likeable and respected grape so rare in California?  While always generous in its fruit, this renowned vineyard near Corralitos displays the region’s characteristically femininity, imparting comely strawberry aromas and rosewater perfume along with spinach leaf, exotic spices, fine sweet tannins and substantial acidity. Perfect for pork and cherries, ripe brie or duck pâté.
