Grenache

(aka. Grenache Noir, Garnacha, Cannonau, Lladoner, Tinto Aragones, Alicante)

  • Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages 2016

    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

    Wine review by effell


  • Fun grenache from Adelaida out of Paso.  Not overly complex but fresh and smooth mainly showing ripe black cherry but with with subtle notes of dark plum and just a touch of leather. There is a medium amount of acidity, smooth light tannins and a medium length finish.  (can y'all see the label?) Read More
