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.

    Wine review by TUDOR


  • I only started drinking wine about a month ago. I have never been a drinker of any kind, but having had wine at a few parties and wedding receptions recently, I decided that I like the stuff. I joined Snooth to get some good recommendations on new wines. I seem to like red wine the most. Of what I have tried I like Petite Sirah, Shiraz, Cabe... Read More

  • Les Deux Rives Corbieres Rouge 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Fruity, berry aromas but enough alcohol that it almost burned your nose. Dark inky purple color that left long slow legs down the glass. Dark fruit presents on the tongue along with a finish that ends again with a touch of subtle sweetness and lingers. Nice. Read More

  • Garnacha de Fuego 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Nice fruit on the nose, very dark fruit, slight tobacco and leather with a very smoky finish. Interesting but not my favorite. I like the label more than I like the wine. Read More

  • Rosemount Estate Red Rhone Blend Mclaren Vale Gsm 2002

    Snoothrank:

    I picked up a few bottles of the 2002 Rosemount GSM a few years ago when Trader Joe's had it for $10 a bottle. I can't say I was thrilled with the first bottle I opened, but I recently drank one that I've kept stored and it has aged very well. The flavor is great. Unfortunately, I only have one bottle left.
