(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 »

  • D'Aragon Old Vine Garnacha 2007


    This is a fantastic as a drinkable table or entertaining wine. I has a slightly dry spice character to it. Good alone or with food. Not too heavy, but surprisingly complex for a relaxed / attainable wine. Try with homemade pasta sauce or bruschetta. Read More

  • M&s Single Estate Grenache Noir 2007


    Really lovely, straightforward 100% Grenache Noir from the Languedoc. A great value with incredible spice concentration (crushed peppercorns, black liquorice) that makes it a great companion to a chorizo picante starter. The fruit expression was just right on this one, with plum, strawberry and mulberry flavors. Surprised at the balance and ov... Read More

  • E. Guigal Red Rhone Blend Gigondas 2005


    Bought this bottle after a tasting of red and white half bottles. On the nose I was hit with strong berry/cherry notes, and a hint of light vanilla and oddly enough, tar. In the mouth it tasted bright and young, which makes sense as I was told it would age well over the next 3-4 years. Overall a very drinkable wine on its own, and the half-bottl... Read More
