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

  • Wayside Paso Robles Red Blend 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A Tasting Room quarterly selection via Lot 18. Not bad, opens with blueberry compote, then some musk, prune, and milk chocolate, and ends with ripe apricot. Medium tannins and acidity. Medium mouthfull to the thin side, but a long finish of fig and ginger, smoke and moss. Not much there, but pleasant enough as a sipper. Held up pretty well to a ... Read More

  • Gerard Bertrand Gris Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is excellent, light and it develops many flavors on your tongue, without being sweet. It taste just as good on empty stomach and it does with food. One of my favorites! Read More

  • Bayonette Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Not a fruit forward wine but is made from nicely ripe fruit. There is a big splash of spiciness then ends very tannic. Softens some with air but remains tannic. Read More

  • Domaine d'Alzipratu Fiume-Seccu Rouge 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This wine offers an enveloping nose of forest berries, black cherries, scrub bush and dried herbs. Its round mid-palate is countered with lightly tugging and vaguely drying tannins. Its racy acidity makes this super quaffable, ideal for a picnic, life fare or sipping any time. Its finish is moderate and super savory. Read More

  • Lampe de Meduse Cru Classé Rosé 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Really nice Provence rose. Light salmon color with watermelon and a hint of mint on the nose. On the palate is lively citrus, tart bing cherry, a touch of melon, lively acidity and a medium long finish. Very refreshing and enjoyable, and the bottle is kind of neat also. Read More

  • Halcon Esquisto Yorkville Highlands 2013

    Snoothrank:

    PnPed. Fairly dark red color. Subdued nosemay open up with more airbut there is noticeable dried fruit hits. On the tongue and under the palate, there is a delightful but light initial hit of dark fruitIm sticking with the dried fruit idea and saying prunewithout a lot of fruity sweetness. Not unexpectantly, this isn't the biggest red wine i... Read More

  • Adelaida Version Red Reserve Anna's Estate Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This is an excellent blend of Mourvedre, syrah and grenache noir. Fairly dark in the glass, silky smooth, loads of dark red and black fruit, blackberry, black cherry, ripe plum, ripe blueberry, supple fine grained tannins and a fairly long finish. Not as earthy or funky as I would expect for a GSM. This baby seems to be hitting its stride. Read More
