(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 »

  • Château de Beaucastel Coudoulet de Beaucastel Rouge 2008


    We had our first glasses last evening. We'd heard through the grapevine (no pun) that this year was going to be a disappointment. That rumor was WAY off the mark. We found it a bit more fruitful than the 2007, without being any sweeter. A wonderful deep red, we also found it a little softer in the mouth, less peppery. This has become our new fav... Read More

  • Miner Family Vineyards the Odyssey Napa Valley Rhone Blend 2005


    60% Syrah25% Grenache15% MourvedreSyrah driven aromatics of grilled meats, violets and licorice and enhanced with a deep base of moist dirt and jammy, spicy strawberry tones. This is too sweetly fruited to be mistaken for a Rhone wine but it certainly shares certain traits, stony notes, soil, leather, and aromatic woodsy tones all contributing ... Read More

  • Grey Stack Cellars the Folly Dry Stack Vineyard 2007


    Smoke, ash, barbeque grill, mint, cedar and sassafras all add complexity to the deep core of jammy wild cherry and mulberry fruits on the nose. Silky on entry with excellent breadth across the palate and waves of soft, slightly opaque fruit that has great depth, almost weight that allows it to seep into the palate, yet this is not a particularl...

  • Chateau Gigognan Vigne du Priure Cotes du Rhone Red Blend 2005


    Rhone character in the herbs and spices here, but more New World-style in being all about the deliciously warm fruit . Light-med bodied, though, so not rich or heavy. Read More

  • Perrin Fils & Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2006


    I will probably keep one of these around because our Cote Du Rhone selections are not that strong in Mississippi. I will say however, that it is a decent wine but extremely light. I can see where someone would mistake it for water. Although, it does have some nice cherry flavors and earth tones that I like. Not a long finish. Will drink aga... Read More

  • Would be interested in hearing from people here about any redwine and fish, crustacean, mollusk, etc. combinations they/you have found to work successfully. Having been initiated at the beginning of my wine tippling into the traditional white-for-fish, red-for-meat school of thought, I've since found that several reds and roses can work just fin...
