(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 »

  • Bodegas Ateca Old Vine Garnacha Calatayud 2007


    Delicious - i would drink this again. Purchased off the 90 point scale (yes, I'm a sucker). Perhaps the effect is the placebo effect and I love the way it makes me feel... mellow, relaxed, happy... no, that isn't all wines.As for the characteristics....I'd have to say bold (from my coffee descriptions)...ripe, a bit off balance, and not off-pu...

  • Château la Nerthe Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2005


    Right off, this wine seems a little overly hot. The alcohol is maybe a bit off balance. Maybe it's this bottle. Who knows.

  • Mas Igneus Grenache Blend Priorat Barranc Dels Closos 2006


    I had this wine at a fantastic nouveau restaurant in Montreal - sadly i cant remember the name of the restaurant. Relatively cheap, but very nice. Cool herbal and mineral tones led to a surprising complexity. Good fruit, and a lot of oomph for a wine of this price. As DM says in his review, very pinot esque, although fuller. Read More
