Paul Lato 2015 Grenache "Lumiere" Larner Vineyard - 95 Points


Paul Lato’s notes: “This is one of the most historic vineyards in Santa Maria Valley tracing its grape-growing history back to the days of the Spanish land grants. Vineyard Manager Chris Hammell and his dedicated crew continue to take this vineyard to even greater heights. Many of this region’s most acclaimed winemakers have enjoyed great success working with this internationally renowned site.”


Jeb Dunnuck  95 Points: “The 2015 Grenache comes from the Larner Vineyard and will see 20 months in 30% new French oak. Black raspberries, blueberries, potpourri and ample spice notes give way to a rich, full-bodied, seamless beauty that has ripe tannin, a touch more flesh than the Bien Nacido cuvée, and ripe tannin. It too is a smoking good Grenache to drink over the coming 7-8 years.”
