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. This hairy-leafed vine produces grapes naturally low in tannin and in color Read more »

Grenache on Snooth

  • Boekenhoutskloof the Chocolate Block 2017

    Snoothrank:

    The Boekenhoutskloof Chocolate Block presents well in the glass - quite opaque red. On the nose, there is a hint of white pepper, pomegranate, and lots of sweet cherry and (perhaps) raspberry. Entry is rewarding with a hint of pepper and a burst of cherry cola and dark chocolate. Finish is long and satisfying with some vanilla and residual ta... Read More

  • Borsao Berola 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Browny-red in color and there is a lovely murkyness of suspended particulate that is not taking anything away from the liquid. Huge smoky spice and vanilla oak immediately on the nostrils followed by tinge of cranberry, blackberry and chokecherry after aggressive swirling....perhaps some slight alcohol burn in the nose as well but it is smooth....

  • Vignobles Jerome Quiot Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Lieu-Dit les Combes d'Arnevel 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Considerable lime, white table grape and gooseberry on the nose with a slight golden hue in the glass. Entry is smooth and balanced - with acidic gooseberry elements, citrus (lime) and quince (or perhaps apple-pear). This is fine white wine with elegance - one you could drink all afternoon on the patio for a great price. 90. Read More
