Grenache

Folded Hills

Whole Cluster Santa Ynez Valley Grenache 2018

Light purple in color with a wide pinkish rim.

Strong fruity nose of strawberries, raspberries, cherries, light earth, wild flowers, light vegetables, spices, rose water, dark coffee and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with raspberries, strawberries, tangy cherries, spices, peppercorn and earth.

Long tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very tasty Grenache from California. Easy drinking and spicy with a nice mouthfeel. Well structured, with a tangy and spicy backbone.

Good right out of the bottle and better after an hour of airtime, when the tannins show up.

The nose smells "clean", which was very interesting, and the alcohol is very unnoticeable, so watch out 😉

100% Grenache grapes.

I paired it with cheeses and heavy appetizers.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$34.

Boots Grenache 2002

Here is a nicely aged Australian Grenache for #AgedWineTuesday.

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.

Great nose of blueberries, cherries, licorice, citrus, cedar, leather, light vanilla, tobacco, chocolates and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, light vegetables, earth, cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, dark coffee, dark chocolates and black pepper.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great surprise. I did not see that coming. This Australian Grenache tastes like an aged Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Great Complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food. Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.

This 18 year old is soft, smooth and elegant. Tasty and interesting.

I paired it with lamb chops and heavy appetizers.

15% alcohol by volume.

A Tribute to Grace Wines

Hofer Vineyard Grenache 2014

In a fascinating place. The nose hits most Grenache notes. Raspberry laced with herbal notes. The palate is wild. Shows those fresh red berries, but has a secondary savory/umami note along with some persistent tannins. Still as nimble and easy as all the Grace bottlings. — 7 days ago

Old Vines Clarendon Grenache 1996

This wine has peaked but is a healthy senior citizen Obvious sweet black fruit. The tannins and oak have faded in the background making this soft and luscious without any hard edges. — 7 days ago

Soft, cherry peel with a hint of tangerine peel, light to moderate skin astringency on finish. Really well crafted, lovely flavor profile, on point varietally. — 12 days ago

Saarloos & Sons

O.G. Windmill Ranch Ballard Canyon Grenache 2014

Last night I opened the 2014 Saarloos & Sons The O.G. Carbonically Fermented Grenache.

On the nose there is black cherry, raspberry, strawberry, vanilla, oak and a nice rich earth note.

On the palate ther are some nice notes of black cherry, raspberry, a ise, cinnamon, spice, herbaceous notes, oak and a nice earth component.

This is a medium bodied wine with medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead into a long nutty fruit finish. With things the way there are in the world presently I pray that we all will be safe in the days to come and that life gets back to normal sooner than later. Nostrovia!!!!! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
