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 »

  • Vignobles Jerome Quiot Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Lieu-Dit les Combes d'Arnevel 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Considerable lime, white table grape and gooseberry on the nose with a slight golden hue in the glass. Entry is smooth and balanced - with acidic gooseberry elements, citrus (lime) and quince (or perhaps apple-pear). This is fine white wine with elegance - one you could drink all afternoon on the patio for a great price. 90. Read More

  • The Ojai Vineyard Sans Soufre a Joute 2017

    Snoothrank:

    50/50 Grenache/Syrah blend. No added sulfies. Quite dark plum color in the glass. A surprising almost smoky nose. I anticipated lots of fruit on the tongue, and, sure enough--blackberry and stone fruit A bit of spritz around the edges of the tongue--probably acid. Medium bodied and refreshing--probably justifies another shout ou to the ac... Read More

  • Barossa Valley Estate Gsm 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Pours a rusty violet color and shows nice clarity in the hue. The aromas are of rustic cherry, Earthy/damp peat, slight leather and smooth all around. The flavors are of ripe deep assorted berry (blackberry, blueberry, cherry), very subtle oaked spice, vanilla creaminess and very well balanced alcohol. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth, and wit...

  • The Ojai Vineyard John Sebastiano Vineyard Syrah Grenache 2016

    Snoothrank:

    An easy wine to enjoy. Stone fruit on entry, although I can also make a case for a suggestion of blueberry. Pleasant, and not over the top, acid. Fairly sedate tannin. Just a nice early drinker that will pair with lighter casual meals. Read More
