What’s a Great Grenache?
Our Friendly Wine Experts Share Their Favorites!
Winemaker Jonathan Scott Oberlander of J. Scott Cellars here in the South Willamette Valley produces outstanding handmade Rhône varietals from the Pacific Northwest. Year in and year out, Jonathan produces a beautiful Grenache that's always an excellent representation of the varietal. Brambly fruit like blackberries and raspberries are highlighted by spice and sometimes tobacco, and the mouthfeel is lush and velvety. With each vintage, Jonathan's Grenache's are medium in body and have super soft tannins, nice acidity and balance precision.
