Grenache

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

The Rousanne component (at least 30%) needs time, but t... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Drank pop and pour. Classic grenache on the nose and fairly translucent in the glass. Medium weight and red fruited in the mouth with some acidity. Finishes with some pretty strong green tannins. Classic in style. We'll see what day two brings.Second day the wine fruit has settled a bit and the acidity has come forward. The green tannins remain.... Read More
