2019 Sandar & Hem "Bates Ranch" Santa Cruz Mountains Grenache Rosé

SKU #1483567 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A very pale shade of pink in the glass, this bottling begins with aromas of wet stone, nectarine and taut pluot flesh on the nose. There’s an extreme grip to the palate, where crushed granite and gravel flavors meet with rounded strawberry-flesh, rosewater and pink melon elements. (MK) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Alpine strawberry, peach blossom, and garrigue define the nose of this pale-salmon rosé. The nose is exuberant with the characteristic fireworks of Grenache, accented by dried herbs and wet stones. On the palate the wine is dry, balancing crisp, mouthwatering structure with luxurious weight and texture. The complex fruit character and long mineral finish of this wine hint at the pedigree of it's provenance. Perched high atop the southeast corner of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, the steep slopes and shallow, gravelly soils of Bates Ranch have yielded stunning wines of great complexity for over four decades. At elevations up to 1000 feet, only a thin sheet of rocky earth separates the old Grenache vines from solid bedrock, where the roots have secured an unrelenting hold, producing wines with an intense aromatic complexity, freshness, and a profound sense of “somewhereness.”
