I first tasted the Grenache Distenta II from bottle at the beginning of 2023. It has barely budged in the interim and feels expectant, its youthfully compact character waiting patiently to blossom. It comes from all four estate vineyards: Eleven Confessions (40%), Cumulus (33%), The Third Twin (21%) and Molly Aïda (6%). A blend of 77.9% Grenache, 9.4% Mourvèdre, 7.9% Syrah, 4.3% Petite Sirah and 0.5% Viognier, it was vinified using 29% whole clusters (mainly from Grenache) and matured for around 23 months in 52% new French oak of various sizes. Medium ruby ​​in colour, it takes plenty of time to unwind in the glass, segueing from streaks of coffee, peppercorn, garrigue and bresaola to a deep core of berry fruit. The medium-bodied palate sits on a razor's edge of concentration and weight, with floral and citrus-tinged fruit, fireworks of fresh acidity and the characteristic, silky smooth texture that's so impressive in the Sine Qua Non wines. This was bottled in June of 2022 and released in January of 2023. 1,650 cases and 600 magnums were made.

About this wine

Central Coast

The Central Coast wine region refers to the large, varied area of ​​California, USA, that stretches along the Pacific coast from Santa Barbara County to San Fransisco Bay. The region is known for its diversity of microclimates, soil types and wine production from a wide range of grape varieties, for example Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Zinfandel. In addition, the Central Coast is a pioneering area for sustainable and organic wine production, as many wine producers have adopted eco-friendly practices to preserve soil health and minimize environmental impact.
