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. This hairy-leafed vine produces grapes naturally low in tannin and in color Read more »

  • Le Cigare Volant 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Markedly different from the 2003. This is the wine to go for if you want a more meaty, fruity wine. The '03 is for structure and finesse.[compared to the '03]. Richer, more mouthfeel, much more youthful tannins. Plums dominate, but the tannins really build over time. A powerful wine, although the finish is smooth. Read More

  • Le Cigare Volant 2003

    Snoothrank:

Its very fruity, on the verge of being too much, so I bet its improved over the last few years as the fruit had time to die down. Nice ... Read More

  • Cuvee de Pena Vin de Pays 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This unoaked red from Vin de Pays is a mix of 57% Grenache, 38% Carignan, and 5% Syrah. Ruby red color. Medium bodied with a smooth mouth feel. Aromas of berry and spice with tastes of red berries, spice, dust, and the peppery characteristic of syrah. This wine is simple but very pleasurable to drink. Great deal for the price. Read More
