Alban Estate Vineyard Grenache 2013

Opened this 2 days ago. It was good then...but it’s SO much better now. No extraordinary measures for storage: put the cork back in and put it in the fridge. Fantastic balance, layers of flavor, and a finish that goes on forever. If you have this in your cellar, let it sit for 3-4 years. Otherwise, decant it for 6 hours and then enjoy. Awesome. — 8 days ago

Hard Point Paso Robles Grenache 2016

Just an amazingly delicious Grenache! Full bodied and perfectly balanced. Could easily be mistaken for a SQN Grenache. Terrific job @Connor McMahon! — 15 days ago

Columbia Valley Grenache 2007

Wow! 12 years old and still tasting fresh. Strawberry notes hide behind initial red plum and white pepper. Tannins are relatively huge; an unexpected acidic bite is intriguing and welcome (and maybe part of why it still tastes so fresh). — 6 hours ago

Earth, mushrooms, peat, tobacco on the nose. Ripe fruit, cherry, a fair amount of alcohol, boisenberry, a little but of oak. Very good. — 12 days ago

Stolpman Vineyard Grenache 2017

So interesting! Has this strong fresh green note that plays with how floral it is, like you’re smelling all parts of a rose garden. I feel like that might be from harvesting early for Santa Barbara? Super pretty light cherry notes that you might predict. Ethereal and lithe. Elegant restraint. Completely drinkable. — 7 days ago

Kangarilla Vineyard Grenache 2010

Loved this. Bright, red berries. Soft tannins. Silky smooth. Decanted for two hours. A total pleasure - savored every drop. Probably the nicest grenache I’ve ever tasted. — 5 days ago

Old Vines Vignes Centenaires Besson Vineyard Grenache 2013

I love this wine! After 6 years the nose stills shows off beautifully pure Grenache kirschy, raspberry fruit and crushed rock, as well as some roasted green herbs. In the mouth, savory flavors are in play, replacing some of the pure fruit I noted in earlier bottles. But still some cherry/raspberry extract fruit there. So good. This is how Chateauneuf used to taste before the doubly whammy of Phillipe Cambie and global warming, if maybe a tad more delicate. — 21 days ago
