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 »

Grenache on Snooth

  • Gérard Bertrand Tautavel Grand Terroir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The reliable and good price-to-quality wines of Bertrand hit the mark again here: there is a lot of wild blueberry, service berry and sweet cherry on the nose due, no doubt to a good dose of Syrah and Mourvedre. The entry is dominated by more blueberry and cherry with a relatively smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Finish is manly (alcoholic) but satis... Read More

  • Xavier Vignon Rasteau 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Loads of Barnyard that fortunately dissipates and does not carry over to the palate. Moss, Earth, Slate, bits of roasted Plum and Cherry. Softens up the more it remains open, Somewhat hard to enjoy due to the initial aroma. Much, much better the 2nd day. Barnyard gone and more roasted dried plum and prunes, silky mouthfeel, quite delightful. Read More

  • Though I've not had the CP-H Rose, I do keep their Le Prestige - 55% Syrah/45% Grenache - in my cellar. As Greg said they are usually pretty solid ranging up to the very good bottling on an occasion.  They are usually good for 3-4 yrs. I personally think his opinion on age of rose is correct.                                            Read More
