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.

  • Onx Wines Mad Crush Paso Robles 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky, red berry and red cherry aromas with a dash of heat and a pop of black pepper spice. Full and robust palate of ripe cherry, strawberry, raspberry and red licorice, this is a touch imbalanced at times but does demonstrate good ripe fruit and a bit of chocolate on the finish. Read More

    Full bunches of ripe red fruit on the palate - raspberry, cherry and strawberry with strong character and spice and a floral note. Delicate but assertive on entry, this continues to deepen on the palate, delivering more ripe cherry, strawberry and mixed berry fruit, warming mouthfeel, good structure and baking spices through to the finish that l...

    Snoothrank:

    Odd wine - intense aromas of red berry fruits, with a slight black berry note and pepper. The palate changes to dominate blackerry and dark cherry tannins, the pepper and spice follow nicely. It fades fast and is disappointing - 88 points - drink now - Paul Read More

  • Check out Routas Infernet 2004, it's a Grenache/Syrah. It's affordable - a great daily.
