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 »

Grenache on Snooth

  • The only grapes that I can for sure figure out is the Zin (of course), syrah, grenache and the strength of the petite sirah...after looking it up it says cabernet sauvignon and charbono (bonarda) are used also.  The charbono I get - I do like, especially the Lamadrid from Argentina; but the cabby I missed out on totally.  Maybe the time in the b...

  • 19 Crimes Red Blend 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Found this sitting around a didn't realize it was a '13 bottling. What a nice surprise it turned into. After sitting for 3 yrs without being bothered it morphed into this viscous, jammy dark cherry dominated wine that finished with good tannic/acidic balanced and a mini-porty syrupy swallow. Maybe they need to sit? 85 points - Paul Read More

  • Cline Family Cellars Cashmere Red Blend California 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty cocoa and vanilla aromas with light red berry fruit. Surprisingly soft on the palate with touches of crushed flower and perfume amidst tart red fruit and big bunches of berries, finishing with a bit of spice and an earthy chocolate note. Read More

  • Evodia Garnacha 2014

    Snoothrank:

    let it breathe - after decanting it gives barberry, pomelo, soft vanilla tone and fragrance of a broken tree twig that becomes brighter after a while. Mid-Soft beginning and more bright, aggressive ending. Not perfect but definitely very interesting to explore wine. Read More

  • Chateau la Liquiere Cistus Faugeres Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    The Cistus (which is named for a white, perfumed Mediterranean flower) Faugeres Blanc is a wild, spicy, perfume bomb - smelling of hot, white subtropical flowers; on the palate, there is a spicy, hot cinnamon (the Vermetino effect) finish which would diminish with some aging, but the wine is satisfying and tasty with orange peel and tropical fr...

  • Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Very pretty wine, plumish in color and nicely pure. When first opened the syrah ... ... tannin. With air the grenache stepped forward and offered some cherry with a soft finish. This is the third vintage of this wine I've drank and if you enjoy cotes du rhone this fills the bill very nicely. Interesting wine and a great QP Read More

  • We just received an 'El Bombero' as a gift. I'm not familiar with it & came for an education.

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