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.

  • M Chapoutier Bila-Haut Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2016

    Snoothrank:
