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 »

  • Saved Wines Magic Maker Rose California 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Fleshy watermelon and strawberry aromas. Quite zesty on the palate with a burst of acidity, tart cherry and watermelon on the palate with a bit more strawberry fruit on the tart tangy finish. Read More

  • Domaine Petroni Corse 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Spritely, fruity tart wine. I can certainly see the Italian influence, here. I bit of a chalky mouth feelinteresting. Something of a saline sensation on the rear of the tongue. This is a low-dollar wine. While it is not a particularly memorable one, for the price it is, certainly, great for everyday drinking. Read More

French wine, a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah.  I've had the Melot from Washington State before so it's a know good one ($12.99).  I think that French wine was around $22.  Anyway, I opened the Columbia Crest Syrah and it's quite good for this price point.  I mi...

  • Don Pasquale Villa Angeli Rose Corsica 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Its worth calling out the packaging/bottle here which is very unique and striking. Inviting aromas of strawberry and watermelon on the nose. Just the gentlest hint of sweetness on entry makes way for a soft, buoyant and easy drinking wine with delicate notes of strawberry, fresh peach, cranberry and watermelon with a lively but smooth texture, a...
