(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.

  • Domaine de la Mordoree Chateauneuf du Pape la Plume du Peintre Grenache Rhone Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2005


    Needs time. Its port-like character shows hints of intense, concentrated complexity. Remove its chastity belt in ten or twenty years and this wine will be a knock-out. Read More

  • Vinsobres Domaine Jaume Altitude 420 2006


    I was researching some Chateauneufs and came across this wine which is 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, a combination I like. This Altitude 420 had great color, nice raspberry and cherry fruit on the nose, and a real nice, drinkable, palate of subtle dark berry and enhanced red berry fruit. Medium bodied. A great value and looking forward to more and... Read More
