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 »

  • Epoch Estate Wines White 2018

    Snoothrank:

    47% Grenache Blanc, 42% Viognier, 11% Roussanne -- Beautiful, straw color in the glass. Viognier is immediately recognizable on the nose--honeysuckle, apricot. Again, Viognier fruitiness is apparent on the tongue--peach, table grapes, and the almost-gewurztraminer spiciness. However, this wine is loaded with acid--from the other grapes, I wou... Read More

  • 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....

  • Check out Routas Infernet 2004, it's a Grenache/Syrah. It's affordable - a great daily.
