(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.

Canonau, which is Ital for Grenache, and OT bought some Primitivo (aka Zin) and some Carignane (not very Italian at all).  We each got a 1-liter refillable jug of their "cheap and charitable" blend, which can be refilled for $12 whenever you stop by.  They had sold ou...

  • Chateau Saint Roch Vieilles Vignes 2013


    Really nice Cotes Du Roussillon blend of grenache blanc and marsanne. The nose has ripe apricot, a bit of flint and some yeast. On the tongue is fig, golden delicious apple, a touch of salinity, nice acidity and a medium finish. Read More

Overall, a real treat for the price, that lives up to it's "silky" name. Read More
