(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.

  • Rosemount Grenache-Syrah-Mouvedre G.S.M 1998


    Opened one in Feb. 2009, and it has aged superbly. The spice is subdued compared to a few years ago, but the velvety smooth richness and fruit still come through. Ready to drink up now! This was probably the best GSM of the '97-'01 years. Read More

  • Bodegas Ateca Atteca 2006


    Soft and supple tannins rounding out a good balance between acidity and sweetness. Cassis and blackberry intermingle with Indian spices on midpalate. Finish is somewhat lacking in my opinion. My wife loved this bottle though. I agree that the cellaring potential is very limited. Read More

  • Louis Bernard Cotes du Luberon 2005


    This is a weird wine - I've never had anything quite like it. The nose was full of cork and floral notes. The palate was soft and fruity. Finish was short. Just not enough going on to keep my interest. Read More

    Wine review by Dauth

  • Good Day All, I am always looking for complex reds, under $25, I especially like Mourvedres such as Rosenblum's, I find Cline's (both) fair. Do y'all have any other ideas? How about other varietals, with that smoky, earthy tone? I am more familiar with Cal wines. Read More
