Land of Saints Rose 2022, Santa Barbara County
Land of Saints is a collaboration between Angela and Jason Osborne (A Tribute to Grace Wine Company), and Manuel Cuevas (C2 Cellars). The name comes from Jason’s roots in Cornwall (also known as the Land of Saints) but is also a play on California’s many Saintly cities (Santa Barbara, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, etc.). For them it is a way connecting their roots from one side of the globe to the other. Their dry rose is a blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Mourvedre. It is medium pink in hue with notes of strawberry, raspberry, tangerine, and a hint of rhubarb. a lively acidity keeps this wine bright on the palate.
