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 »

  • Clos du Mont-Olivet Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This 2008 (an average vintage) from the reputable Clos du Mont-Olivet has the usual confit scent of cherry, raspberry and a hint of latex. The wine is mature (2016) with a nice Southern Rhone entry of sage, raspberry, strawberry (for some people) and rubber (not in a bad way). Finish is warm, friendly and perfect for the lamb stews of southern... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    The 2012 Halos of Jupiter, reflecting a more usual (ordinary) vintage is ... ... ... but true to its fine Grenache base, it has a rich cherry flan nose and a fairly sweet, viscous cherry entry with a hint of almond bitter on the finish. A find Cotes du Rhone for the money. 88 point Read More

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

  • Lake Norman Winery Grenache Pendant 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Nice enough Dry Creek Valley grenache from our local North Carolina negociant. There's some earthiness on the nose along with some ripe dark berries. Loads of ripe dark cherry on the tongue along with some black licorice, fine grained tannins, nice acidity and a medium finish. Read More
