“...what we are trying to achieve here is not to blindly emulate the Frenchies, but rather, to try and find our own original style and voice, informed by the uniqueness

of the vineyards, climats, and by the (mostly) sunny disposition of the Central Coast of California. The Language of Yes is certainly a journey of discovery, continuously working rather more to create complexity and soulfulness in the vines and wines.” - Randall Grahm

ABOUT THE NAME: The Language of Yes

“Odd name for a wine, what? ‘The Language of Yes’ or La Langue d'Oc is the term that medieval folk of southern France and adjacent environs used to describe who they were by how they spoke (differentiating themselves from ‘La langue d’oil’ spoken by their northern neighbors - a oui bit of parochialism, non?) The Language of Yes,” a precursor of modern Provençal, is a window to a particular sensibility - the language of the love poetry of the troubadours - one that esteemed passion and romance above cerebration and most significantly, expressed a deep, almost mystical love of the land.” - The Language of Yes


The label was designed by Chuck House in conjunction with Toronto-based design studio Public Address.
“The label art takes its inspiration from a long out-of-print book on Medieval Occitan culture sourced from a rare book dealer in Paris. Expanding on the design by Chuck, Public Address developed an identity system with a distinctly literary style. The typeface Traulha, also inspired by Occitan culture and language, is used throughout as a contemporary nod to the historic roots. The brand’s tone of voice compliments the design system and places Randall as the first-person protagonist with a more neutral narrator as straight man.” 

Winemaker Notes

A French-inspired, Cinsaut-based red blend. Cinsaut and Syrah co-fermented for two weeks to extract color and texture. A small amount of Grenache from Rancho Réal was blended for fragrance. Aged in neutral barrels and stainless. Exuberantly fragrant and soft on the palate, the wine is highly evocative of red and black fruit, most specifically, black currant and black raspberry.
