This episode of the Podcast features Randy Heinzen in his return to the podcast. During a trip to Paso Robles in January 2019 Randy gave me a in-depth tour of vineyards in Paso Robles. Randy then let me know about a young planting on his family’s ranch, Coakley Vineyard, that included new, cleaned-up clones of Grenache. His excitement for the potential of this new wine was infectious and I have spent the past two years building that very wine by leveraging the opportunity to work with Naked Wines. In this episode, we talk about viticulture in Paso Robles, building the Coakley Vineyard Grenache from grapes to wine, Randy delivers with new terms such as phyllosilicates the “point of discontinuity”, and triple-trimming Grenache pre-set.
