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.

  • Cline Cellars Red Rhone Blend California Cashmere 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Saved a bottle of this for a few years. Have found it is different than the usual Cline Cashmere. A bit softer and less mourvedre. At five years the wine has turned a bit brickish at the edges and has lost some of its fruitiness and some pleasent acidity has taken it place. It has soft tannins on the finish but with noticable drying. Wish this b... Read More

  • Sella & Mosca Cannonau Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This wine surprised me beyond my expectations at this price. It has a classic Italian lightness to it similar to a quality Valpolicella or other semi-acidic wine from the Veneto region. Yet this grape is native to Sardegna alone Read More

    Snoothrank:

    More red than blue in color. Bright tart nosesome earthiness. Initial impression belies the nose. Candied berry fruit on the tip of the tonguecherry. As the wine passes back under the palate I get more earthiness and tartness, and the wine acquires sophistication and complexity. It does seem a bit hot, and Im OK with that. As my taste buds...
