A Tribute to Grace Wines

Santa Barbara Highlands Rosé of Grenache 2017

Exactly what I wanted on a hot, humid day. Lighter bodied, with soft white peach and wild strawberry notes, and a clean, refreshing finish. The acidity seems lower than last year’s version, which makes this more gulpable but also a touch less crisp. Our bottle was gone in a flash. — 11 days ago

Cork Dancer Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

Raspberry and dark cherry. Very fruity. Nice mouthfeel with low tannin—goes down easy! Moderate to high acidity, not too sweet either. Good with pickled vegetables. — 2 days ago

Incredible nose that is very enticing. Great texture but the tannins could use a little more depth. — 6 days ago

Blue Label Santa Barbara County Syrah

Great wine...Smoky on the nose with olive and leather on the palate. The finish is smooth with absolutely no rough edges. It’s in a great place right now but could go a few more years. This wine is consistently good. — 8 days ago

Reserve Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay 2015

Color of saturated gold. Nose is very nice with roasts nuts, even some cocoa, honey, ripe fruits note, and oaks. Exactly like the color hints you. Taste follows similar notes, a dense silky Chardonnay, with vanilla bean and coffee bean flavors, a bit zesty, tinkling mouthfeel, loaded with roasted nuts characters, and slight hint of the sweetness from ripe fruits. Aftertaste shows some additional acidity, low mineral and low tannins. Very nicely done. — 20 days ago

Sounds really nice, and gently priced.

Toccata

Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir 2014

It tastes yellow....and not in the cowardly sense, rather bold the Spanish flag. The label only lacks a bull with balls hanging. — 3 days ago
