Gracias 2021
  • Vision

    Our 2018 Gracias is all about gratitude. None of us at Bodega de Edgar had any idea, back in the fall of 2018 when these grapes were on-stem and uncrushed, that we were crafting a wine that would be held up as a token of our appreciation to our fans who remained loyal to us during these trying times.

    What I’ve learned these past few years is that life is unpredictable. No one could have predicted that the Graciano varietal, which is front and center in this bottle, would have ever made it to Paso Robles. Due to a mistake in a vine nursery a half a world away, wine growers in Paso thought that they were working with a particular clone of Mourvèdre.

    When the ampelographers (grape scientists) eventually realized this grape wasn’t Mourvèdre at all, we embraced it for what it was: a serendipitous mistake. We were (and are) thankful to have this special grape as part of what makes Paso Robles a special and unique place to grow wine grapes.

  • Vintage Notes

    2019 will go down as the greatest cool-weather vintage of the decade, maybe even further back than that. Cool vintages produce excellent wines. Fruit hangs on the vine longer, developing more complexity, revealing more depth of character, leaner fruit profiles, and more prominent minerality in the finished wines. It’s like God copy-pasted the 2011 vintage, then erased all the problematic weather events that plagued us eight years ago.

    The 2019 vintage that our region has been releasing will be cherished now and for years to come, as they are lively and approachable at the moment, while possessing the litheness to age gracefully for another decade or more.

  • Tasting Notes

    Deep purple-hued, with strong aromas of mulberry, violets, and dark chocolate with a touch of cedar. It’s medium to full-bodied and has ample floral, spice, and blue fruit nuances, a gorgeous texture, and outstanding length. The high acidity and tannin structure will allow you to lay this wine down for a decade.
