Austin Hope Grenache Suisun Valley 2020

Austin Hope advised on the planting of Baines Vineyard in Northern California’s Suisun Valley, and this wine represents the fruits of his labor. Formally recognized as an AVA in 1982, Suisun Valley lies adjacent to Napa Valley and benefits from the persistent marine influence of nearby San Pablo Bay. This wine underwent extended aging in French oak, adding to its distinction. The result is a uniquely compelling Grenache that shines with bright fruit flavors, pretty textures and earthy undertones.

The Suisun (Soo-Soon) Valley AVA is located in Solono County, just east of the Napa growing region. While small at only eight miles long and three miles wide it has been relatively undiscovered until recently. Located near the San Pablo Bay, there is no shortage of cooling afternoon breezes during the growing season creating ideal growing conditions. Soils here are deep and varied types of loam which is well drained and allows roots to grow deep. We source from a small, young vineyard planted with quality in mind. Managed sustainably and thoughtfully, these balanced vines produce complex flavors and dark color.
