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 »

  • M. Chapoutier Grenache Blend Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour Domaine de Bila-Haut Vignes Bila 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is a very nice Rhone blend of syrah, grenache and carignan. Very well balanced with the blackberry and dark red cherry from the syrah coming to the forefront. This has soft, fine tannins, decent acidity, a touch of earthiness and a medium length finish. Excellent QPR! Read More

  • Wine Men of Gotham Shiraz Grenache 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Stemmy and fairly herbal on the nose with aggressive aromas of tar, butchers wax, and cigar ash. A touch round and perhaps just a smidgen sweet on entry, this shows off plenty of acidity in the mouth with wild cherry and slightly nutty and perhaps herb stem tinged flavors on the palate. Its an easy going wine with a very modest finish and jammy ... Read More

  • Schild Estate Old Vine Bush Grenache-Mourvedre-Syrah Barossa 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Big aromas of dried herbs, green spices, green olive, leather and gamy fowl greet the nose along with rusty red berry fruit and some emerging vanilla. Big and weight in the mouth, this has some viscosity to it and while I prefer my wine a bit leaner and fresher this does deliver a rich and soft mouthful of dark berry and slightly plummy fruit la...

    Jammy and rich on the nose with lots of almost grapey, black berry fruit thats framed by hints of truffle, black spice and cardamon. Smooth and plush in the mouth, theres enough acid to keep this bright on the palate but this is a rich and seamless feeling wine. The fruit has a nice clear quality to it, transparent wild strawberry and wild berri... Read More

  • Pelaquie Cotes du Rhone 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Vividly fruity on the nose with great floral notes and a touch of peppery spice underlying the tobacco tinged blue plum and mulberry fruit. This has fine and subtle earthy complexity on the nose, if just a hint of VA adding lift. In the mouth this is quite smooth, moderately rich and yet on the midpalate it turns just a little austere and wonder... Read More

    Reticent on the nose with clear notes of candied strawberry and blackberry fruits wrapped in hints of leather, dried herbs, grilled meat and licorice. Smooth and moderately rich in the mouth, this really could use a bit more acidity for my palate, though many will appreciate the wines seamless character and slightly weight feel. On the palate on...
