A Tribute to Grace Santa Barbara County Grenache Rose 2017

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $53.99!
91 Our Score
(5/2018) The arrival of Angela Osborne's "A Tribute to Grace" Rose is always much anticipated by staff and in-the-know customers. For those not familiar with the story, Angela - a New Zealand native - named the winery in honor of her grandmother, Grace, and these small-batch wines have developed quite a following. Crafted from specific biodynamically farmed blocks of Grenache in the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard, Angela's 2017 Rose is incredibly finessed and beautifully structured. On the nose and palate there are a symphony of orange rind, white tea and red flowers. The finish is zesty and perfectly balanced by a bit of richness. The wine is amazing now, but it will be truly epic in another year. Dare we suggest decanting a Rose? Only 734 cases were produced of this incredibly finessed wine and we are thrilled to have been able to get our hands on some.

A Tribute to Grace Santa Barbara County Grenache Rose 2018

This new release of A Tribute to Grace Rose is like spring in a glass!
92 Our Score
(4/2019) Grenache virtuoso Angela Osborne biodynamically farms a single parcel of Grenache vines in the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard that is used exclusively for her annual bottling of Rose. Her passion for Grenache comes through in all of her wines and this fresh release of Rose is a beautiful and expressive example that can easily pass for a top-tier classic from Provence. The wine is vibrant and full of life with a smooth and round texture that caresses the palate. Deep and complex flavors of strawberry, honeydew melon, peach and cherry skin are met with notes of honeysuckle, fresh cut flowers, white pepper and refreshing minerality. This full-bodied effort is best enjoyed today with a plate of grilled Mediterranean-style cuisine, and be sure to stash a few bottles of this gem away for next year's Rosé season because it will age, you know... Grace-fully!

Hollyhock Santa Barbara County Gamay Rose 2018

90+ Our Score
(7/2019) This single-vineyard Gamay is picked early specifically for the production of Hollyhock's white and rose wines. Spontaneously fermented, then aged on its lees in stainless steel for 6 months, this rose is remarkably fresh and breezy. With young strawberry and mint on the nose and palate and a notable wisp of salinity akin to coastal air, this rose is defiant of its modest weight on the palate by being delightfully light on its feet!
