En Passerillage Grenache 2020

I tried my first bottle of this several months ago, and since then it’s really settled down and blossomed. Light color, but the nose pops with perfumey cherry and raspberry, along with subtle notes of moist earth, spice, and sandalwood. In the mouth, it’s got intense flavors in a floaty carriage, with deep red fruit and lots of savory notes. Long finish, with a teensy bit of tannin. Alcohol in check, and enough acidity to keep the intense fruit buoyed up. Superb. If you’re a Grenache hound like me, get some of this. — 2 days ago

Close Planted Yarra Valley Grenache 2017

Nose not giving much initially - just an earthy note - fairly contained. Probably opened a little young? The next night it showed red fruited aromatics of raspberry and strawberry. Very fine on the palate and quite delicious. The winemaker and owner Tom Carson with his French wife, Nadege, just won Viticulturalist of the year 2 days ago in the Halliday Wine Awards. They also import a range of Burgundies. In his “spare time “ Tom is also the winemaker at the highly regarded Yabby Lake. — 10 days ago

Rozas 1er Cru Vino de Paraje Grenache 2020

Stinky but blows off, leaving a rubbery aftertaste. A little funky but in a compelling way. Really transparent and full of flavor, if a little bitter on the finish. — 15 days ago

Shenandoah Valley Grenache 2019

McKahn Family Cellars - 2019 Grenache - WOW! I love Grenache and this is definitely my new favorite!!! this is just about the perfect wine. The nose is blueberry pie fresh out of the oven. The initial palate is loaded with big ripe black and purple fruit and berries. This is so good and complex. Blackberry, boysenberry, plumb, ripe sweet juicy grapes fresh off the vine, and a hint of raspberry. Then comes the earthy tones of graphite and oak. There is a hint of chocolate and spice in the background. The finish is dry and absolutely no sourness anywhere. This is a true gem!!!!!
Fantastic job McKahn family!

Grenache 2018

Who knew Grenache would grow this far north? 100% Grenache from the “Musikantenbuckel” site in Freinsheim near Bad Dürkheim, in the north of the Pfalz wine region. Aged for 18 months in oak. Elegant nose with notes of dark fruit, spices and oak. Medium-bodied, lighter, more ethereal than Mediterranean grenache. Quite a surprise. — 11 days ago
