Grenache Gris

Pedernales Cellars

Texas High Plains Grenache 2020

The 2020 Pedernales Texas High Plains Grenache carries alcohol at a lofty 15.3% abv, but the color is only medium-dark and the mouthfeel is surprisingly light. The nose brings strawberry, raspberry and blackberry aromas, while the palate is rich in red fruit. The tannins are firm, yet the wine has a silky feel in the mouth. Not exactly what I was expecting, but delightful nonetheless. — 10 days ago

Greg Ballington

Medium ruby red in appearance. A bit savory on the nose with berries, spices, cocoa and a hint of earthiness. Well balanced palate with a medium body and medium tannins (5.5/10). Fresh red berries on the palate with some darker spices and bramble berries. Medium plus finish. Drink till 2029. — 14 days ago

The Boy Grenache 2018

Almost overwhelmingly mineral, displaying the smoky campfire embers and rich loamy scents I associate with Walla Walla, along with sandalwood and very sappy cherry-ooze fruit. Dark and minerally on the palate: very low-toned flavors fill the mouth. Fair amount of medium-soft tannin, and a very long, low acid finish that has an echo of port-like fruit and the very tail end. Very complex and idiosyncratic wine. — 20 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Grenache Gris 2017

Bought at the domaine in 2019. Orange peel, hazelnut, minerals, very ripe melon and pear. Deep and rich, with tremendous length, this is very impressive and puts a big smile on my face. — a month ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé Grenache Blend 2018

Nose has tangerine peel, raspberries, roses and under-ripe nectarine.

Palate has candied orange, strawberry, orange pith/zest, mild acidity and lingering mineral notes to the medium finish.

Blind, this is a Provence rose to me; nice effort in the cellar here. A steal of a deal when we got this for ~$14.

2018 Blend: 38.5% Grenache, 30.5% Grenache Blanc, 12.5% Carignane, 10% Cinsault, 6% Mourvedre, 2% Picpoul & 0.5% Vermentino

0.5% Vermentino! Would it really make a difference? Just don’t understand why a winemaker would bother to blend such a small percentage with the mostly Southern Rhone blend.

Gotta put it somewhere...?

Spicewood Vineyards

Texas High Plains Grenache Rosé 2021

This pink wine is quite rich in color. Its hue is a cross between salmon orange and copper, looking very much like roses. The nose is a blast of strawberries, green parts and all, with an earthy herbal streak and a line of black pepper. On the palate, the brash rosé comes on like a red wine, with tons of flavor and a refreshing acidity. This wine’s pairing ability can reach from salads’n’seafood territory into pork chops, burgers and cheese plates. — 17 days ago
