Professional Wine Reviews for A Tribute to Grace Grenache Spear Vineyard 2016

Rated 93 by Jeb Dunnuck
Peanut brittle, toasted spices, peppery herbs, and assorted savory fruits emerge from the 2016 Grenache Spear Vineyard, which comes from a younger site in the Sta. Rita Hills. It gains depth and richness with time in the glass, has medium-bodied richness, a terrific core of sweet fruit, and a great finish, all making for an irresistible Grenache to drink over the coming 4-6 years.
Rated 91 by Wine & Spirits
Tight and brambly, this tastes like a bowl of strawberries, with a mild sous bois frame. The fruit is tense and bright while the tannins are firm and grippy—a bit like zinfandel, one taster remarked, responding to the wine’s mild and invigorating astringency. Pour it with tea-smoked duck.

Winery A Tribute to Grace

Region: California

California as a wine producing region has grown in size and importance considerably over the past couple of centuries, and today is the proud producer of more than ninety percent of the United States' wines. Indeed, if California was a country, it would be the fourth largest producer of wine in the world, with a vast range of vineyards covering almost half a million acres. The secret to California's success as a wine region has a lot to do with the high quality of its soils, and the fact that it has an extensive Pacific coastline which perfectly tempers the blazing sunshine it experiences all year round. The winds coming off the ocean cool the vines, and the natural valleys and mountainsides which make up most of the state's wine regions make for ideal areas in which to cultivate a variety of high quality grapes.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.

Appellation: Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is home to many of California's most sought after wines, with a powerful reputation for superbly crafted, old world style big, flavorful and complex red wines. The white wine industry in the region is growing, too, with many wineries within Santa Barbara successfully experimenting with several classic white wine grape varietals. As in much of California, Santa Barbara benefits from the blazing west coast sunshine, coupled with cooling Pacific Ocean breezes and fogs, which help to temper the grapes and slow the ripening process, thus ensuring more flavor and aroma in the resulting wines. Although Santa Barbara is a relatively young wine region, it is home to many wineries who are extremely dedicated when it comes to demonstrating just how good their terroir is, and how characterful their region's wines can be.
