Grenache

(aka. Grenache Noir, Garnacha, Cannonau, Lladoner, Tinto Aragones, Alicante)

Traditionally in California, Grenache has mostly been planted in the warm Central Valley, to produce fruity, quaffable reds and pinks. But the emergence of Rhône blends, enthusiastically promoted by a band of winemakers known as the ‘Rhone Rangers’, has sparked an increase in plantings of Grenache in more esteemed California viticultural zones. Significant acreage of this grape is found in Santa Barbara and Monterey counties. Grenache’s ability to produce in warm climates has made it a workhorse varietal not only in California, but also in the warmth of South Australia and South Africa. Grenache-based wines tend to be high in alcohol, with attractive fruit qualities in youth. Grenache’s sweet berry character, makes it a successful candidate for rosé wines, the most famous coming from the southern French appellations of Tavel and Lirac. This hairy-leafed vine produces grapes naturally low in tannin and in color Read more »

  • Gabriel Meffre Plan de Dieu Cotes du Rhone Villages "Saint-mapalis" 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This regular Southern Rhone offering has an excellent sweet cherry nose exuding the essence of Grenache; on the palate, there is more of the same with withering red fruit flavors, some stem-like acerbity and soft tannin on the finish. This is slightly above the usual café style in (say) Gigondas. 85- 86 points. Read More
