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.

  • Château Saint-Roch Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Nose had dark fruit including blackberry, a touch of black pepper, and a slightly dusty character as well. The tannins were definitely there but not too huge. Medium body. Somewhat acidic, there's a little bit of a zing on the palate. The only thing I didn't like was the occasional alcohol smell when swirling the wine. Read More

  • Château Saint-Roch Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône 2005

    Snoothrank:

    A very nice Côtes-du-Rhône made from Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault that was definitely ready to drink. Medium bodied and with mild tannins and a earthy finish. Hints of raspberries and spice hit you quickly but then dissipate. Very good choice for the price, especially if you want to get a feel for Côtes-du-Rhône. Read More
