(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 »

  • Chateau l'Ermitage Cuvée Tradition Blanc 2007


    Mainly Roussane with some Grenache and a tiny bit of Viognier, this is a lovely white wine that could easily become my summer quaffer. Fruity with a little floral. Read More

  • Vilaforca Domaine Paraire 2005


    This is a very typical Roussillon that is sure to please. Predictably fruity from the Grenache and similar grapes specific to this region of Southern France. This is not a jaw dropper, but has a nice fruity taste with a dry finish. It is truly a step above the Vin de Pays d'Oc that is the lower graded wine from this region. This might be ha... Read More

  • Cass Rockin' One 2005


    The medium-ruby colored Tranquility is a blend of Mouvedre, Syrah, & Grenache grapes, so it was no surprise that there was a spicy, white pepper smell on the nose. Behind the pepper smell, there was grape and raspberry. As far as taste, the wine felt a little light in the mouth, particularly because the spiciness was even stronger on the palat... Read More

  • Château Bas Grenache Blend Coteaux d'Aix-en-provence l'Alvernègue 2007


    Fresh tasting wine with lots of herbal/garrigue elements: lavender, thyme and other bitter herbs. Smell suggestive of fresh hay. Just how I imagine Provence! Read More

  • Domaine de Font-Sane Gigondas Tradition 2006


    Deep wonderful lush dark blackberry-currant, with the softness und with all the ... the ... Very nice blend of Grenache, syrah, mouvedre and cinsault. For some unknown 2000 year old reason seemingly the French have sole lock on using these varietals over and over again like DNA nucleic tide acids in fresh combo ad infinitum for each refreshing...

  • Château la Nerthe Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2005


    There ist a reason this appellation is called the "House of the Pope": It is a virtual religious experience. All wines 'arrive alive' in the bottle, waking up when we release the cork. This blend of gracious goodness maybe even more so? It was my first French and also my first blend. Yea verily, I know: Nice way to start! This came as a huge sho... Read More

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


    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
