Even at the age of 100, George Besson's ungrafted vines are positively pulsing with vitality, producing wines evocative of lavender, black pepper, and sappy, morello cherry fruit.

It is often and appropriately used to describe old vine grenache, for the inner core of this wine, seems extracted from deep within the earth.

Blessed with fine, integrated tannins, a lithe body, and a powerful reserve of fruit, this grenache can hold its own against the spiciest sauces invented, soothing the heat and providing a peppery counterpoint to hot-tempered BBQ preparations and cold, smoked chorizo alike.

With a year in bottle, the rambunctious red fruits settle down a shade, and while still remaining supple, more evolved notes of kirsch liqueur and a touch of aromatic cedar surface.

Savour over a smokin' hot girl with spring lamb with rosemary, elk or any other large horned animal], or seared tuna steaks

Producer Information

Founded in Santa Cruz in 2008, and drawing on a combined 35 years making and selling wine in California, France, and Italy, owners and winemakers Alex Krause and John Locke are focused on attaining the perfect balance of perfume, poise, and puckishness with a particular fondness for varieties that provide enormous pleasure and re-establish a direct connection to the sensual world.
John worked from 1990-2007 with Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyard, with Andre Ostertag of Domaine Ostertag in Alsace in 1993, and with a host of small producers across Italy and Southwestern France. Alex started in 1992 with Randall, worked with John in the cellar, and then escaped to the sales side in the later 90's to eventually serve today as Director of Export Sales for Bonny Doon Vineyard.
