91 points - Jeb Dunnuck

2020 was our first vintage sourcing Grenache from Spear Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and we are so impressed with this wine! Bright, ripe cherries, plums and marionberries mingle with an herbal, medicinal quality that reminds us of Fernet branca, along with warm baking spices, olive brine and sassafras. This Grenache will complement a wide range of fare at the dinner table and will delight nearly every palate. -Lily Hays, Director of Hospitality and Education

"Hints of bay and thyme give an earthy edge to the red plum and cranberry aromas on the nose of this bottling from the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills. Cranberry and orange-rind flavors are lit up by white pepper on the palate, where grippy tannins provide a textural bite." -Matt Kettmann

"The 2020 Grenache Spear Vineyard (100% Grenache) comes from a site in the Sta. Rita Hills, and its translucent ruby hue is followed by an incredibly perfumed red offering bright red fruits, notes of sandalwood, white pepper, and exotic herbs, medium-bodied richness, a fresh, pure, precise mouthfeel, and a great finish. It might pass undetected in a blind lineup of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir." -Jeb Dunnuck

90 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The 2020 Grenache Spear Vineyard is a very pretty, lifted wine with lovely aromatics to match its mid-weight structure. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, mint, spice, licorice and orange peel all grace this ethereal, impeccably balanced Grenache." -Antonio Galloni
