WineSmith 2017 Grenache

There is, in my view, no other region in California that compares to the Santa Cruz Mountains for producing wines of distinctive terroir expression. Something about its mountain soils and mix of sandstone and greenstone, plus the lush surrounding herbs that encircle its tiny vineyards and impart their own distinctive “air-oir” gives each vineyard a unique stamp. The area is moderated by heavy Pacific influence but also lifted above the fog so that it enjoys plenty of cool direct sunlight, the perfect recipe for the grape to express itself.

Every grower is a gambling man. We grow some of the best Merlot in California, but it always pays to hedge your bets. That’s why we developed our own brand featuring me and my Dad, Jake II with whom I built this vineyard from scratch in 1999. By eliminating the middle man, a grower-produced wine can provide a wonderful bargain.

At Diamond Ridge Vineyards, we don’t grow a single white grape. Instead, we produce this delicious dry pink wine from Merlot for when we want something cold and quaffable.

Dry Rosé (PennyFarthing)
Dry Rosé (PennyFarthing)

This is not the pink sodapop embarrassment so aptly termed “blush.” In the French tradition, serious dry rosé is a byproduct of our Bordeaux-style red wine production. After crushing grapes for red wine, winemakers often draw off a portion of clear juice for rosé production in order to increase the skin-tojuice ratio, thus the color and tannin of the red. This lush, ripe juice needed some fresh energy, so we blended in 8% Sauvignon Musqué to enhance its aromatic freshness.
