'The Besson Vineyard sits just shy of the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation, on the 'Hecker Pass' linking Santa Cruz to Gilroy. Planted in 1910, this historic vineyard was brought to fame years ago by Randall Grahm's 'Clos de Gilroy', and I was lucky enough to be offered three gracious tons in 2013. Owned and farmed by third generation farmer George Besson Jr, these amazing head-trained vines now look remarkably like wizards. The vines are spaced 8'x6' on a gravelly clay loam soil, and continue to be dry-farmed and organic.Grace's block sits on the western side of the property, abutting an old river bed with the most gentle of slopes. A most humbling opportunity that we are so very grateful for, to work with grapes such as these.' -Angela Osborne

How often do you use nimble and California Grenache in the same sentence? Such pretty strawberry fruit and exceptional balance, could only be ATTG.

Beautiful expression of Grenache. A bit richer & rounder than I typically find with Tribute to Grace, yet retains the elegance and beauty that always seems to come through.
