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.

  • Ferraton Père and Fils Crozes-Hermitage la Matinière 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A whiff of barnyard (but not the good kind) and bit of that gaminess on the front end with muted ripe black plum and dried fig. The tannins were a touch harsh, not the best Rhone blend we've had. Read More

  • Mas Doix Salanques Priorat 2010
