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.

  • Matetic Vineyard Corralillo Merlot-Malbec 2006


    Deep, clear ruby coloured, with a forward, fruity nose of strawberry and ... ... ... and a hint of gritty, grenache-like dirt prevent this from being completely uncomplicated, but it is pretty much a big, jammy, slightly old-fashioned New World mouth-filler.

    Nose doesn't give away much, Fruit here is masked by green tannins and burnt oak on palate. Taste is thin, hollow on the mid and ends with a bitter astringent finish. Unsatisfying Read More

  • Sequillo Cellars Red Rhone Blend Swartland Sequillo Red 2004


    Give this wine some time to open up. When it does it's impressively complex on the nose and palate. Spicy and dirty with just enough fruit to make it fresh. I had heard good things about this wine and it lived up to the hype. This is what wine at the $30 price point should deliver. Read More
