Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard, Santa Barbara, CA
A Tribute to Grace
What we love
Angela Osborn is a New Zealand born Winemaker who moved to California in 2006 with a dream of making Grenache. The Wine is named after her beloved Grandmother and her most beloved attribute. The Highlands Vineyard is located just outside of Santa Barbara County closer to Ojai. This wine has aromas and a palate filled with dark rich plums, tobacco and baking spices.
About this Wine
The expression of Grenache that accompanies the altitude of the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard continues to amaze. Sitting at 3,200 feet elevation, this arid, moonscape setting is home to sand, brush, exposed rocks... and grapes. It’s the perfect setting for Grenache. Summer days are blazing hot, but the evenings cool off dramatically so while the wine has 13.8% alcohol, it’s as fresh as the Prince of Bel-Air. This is very much a wine that fully embraces the boundless potential of California terroir. 424 cases made.
