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.

  • Artazuri Navarra 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Lately I just can't get enough grenache. It must be something in the air. This very inexpensive Navarra was a decent fix. On the nose I was thinking it would be much bigger bodied that it turned out to be - still a fairly large wine. The alcohol at times seemed a little out of whack, but nothing major.
