2021 Grenache, Rancho Réal Vineyard

Santa Maria Valley

Rancho Réal is one of the coolest sites where vines are successfully grown in California. Overall, 2021 was an excellent vintage in the Central Coast with no major weather events. While we did not have the opportunity to air-dry the grapes post-harvest, the '21 vintage was harvested a bit later than the '20 and as such, is a slightly more intense and concentrated wine, requiring perhaps a longer tenure in the cellar to come to optimal expression.
