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.

    Snoothrank:

    Juicy and tasty red rhone blend from Adelaida in Paso. Lots of dark red and blue fruit but not overly jammy. Ripe blackberry on the nose and palate with some nice crushed plum, ripe black cherry and a touch of raisin. There's a touch of tart acid on the medium to long finish. Read More
