"George and Martha Besson’s old Grenache vineyard near Gilroy is one of the best sites with which we work. It could be nothing but Grenache, yet tastes like no other Grenache. 2019 has turned out to be a very special vintage for Besson, likely the finest we have seen since working with and tasting this vineyard in the early 90s. Yields were half of the size of 2018 as a result of widespread shatter. In addition, berry size was quite small and thus the skin-to-juice ratio was quite high." -Birichino
