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 »

  • Razor's Edge Shiraz Blend Mclaren Vale Shiraz-Grenache 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Good bargain, good Shiraz blend. Dry enough for the Shiraz fans, and the Grenache gives it a nice balance. I didn't think I'd like it as much as a straight Shiraz, but it's darn close. Blend of peppery and dark berries. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    This Rhône-style blend is bravely composed of 9 different varietals including: ... Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Grenache. The outcome is successfully, by design, an enigmatic Rhône Valley tribute including, literally, every typical Rhône varietal. Surprisingly, I found characteristics and nuances that Incognito unabashedly shared with the prev... Read More

  • Tintara Grenache Mclaren Vale 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Compared to the French and Spanish Grenache I'm used to, this one comes across as lighter, more fruity, slightly acidic, and with much easier tannins. To many people, this would be a list of prime attributes. To me, this is exactly the opposite of why I drink Grenache. I'd very much like something with a bit more heft to it. That isn't to ...
