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 »

The aromas are of fresh black cherry, vanilla bean, cinnamon spice and hints of spearmint leaf....with underlying aromas of chocolate, fresh coffee grounds and soft peppercor... Read More

  • La Condamine Paulignan Minervois 2015

    Snoothrank:

    The opaque, deep cherry red wine exudes a perfume of Mediterranean brush (garigue), and spicy, peppery plum. The entry is slightly rustic with white pepper, black cherry, plum and leather predominating. This panoply of flavour lingers only on the back palate for a satisfying finish. Great value from southern France. 89. Read More

  • Jolie-Laide Grenache Provisor Vineyard 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Very pretty translucent garnet color. Modestly fruity nose. On the tongue, a light hit of tart red berry--cherry, red raspberry--but, again, a light hit.
