Others Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Grenache 2016

Blend of Grenache, Carignan, Syrah & Mourvedre, deep Ruby with aromas black fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of plum and blackberry with notes of cacao, spice and earthy notes. Medium+ finish, fine tannins, great mouthfeel (15.2 ABV), ending with fruit and earthy spice, nice! — 3 days ago

Château de Trinquevedel

Tavel Rosé Grenache 2020

I tend to be rather picky about rosé, but I always love those from the Tavel area. This one is consistently satisfying. Glorious salmon-pink color and fresh, juicy flavors of strawberry and watermelon. Great with our Niçoise salad! 60% Grenache, 13% Clairette, 13% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 3% Mourvèdre, 1% Bourboulenc. 5/15/22. — 19 days ago

Sine Qua Non

Stein California Grenache

Dense boysenberry in color: nose of blackcurrant, spice and a little licorice; lovely texture of fully ripe fruit that’s bright with just enough supporting tannin. SQN always so solid. — 8 days ago

Ochota Barrels

The Fugazi Vineyard Grenache 2019

Crisp, cool, tart, stemmy and fresh.
Raspberries, cranberries, mineral funk, peppery and spicy garrigue and cold rocks (if that makes any sense…), as opposed to the hot terracotta tiles I often get in many other Grenaches.
This has a very cool-climate feel to it, rather delicate and refreshing. Like a Bojo from Oz. Lovely!

The Boy Powerline Vineyard Grenache 2016

Two years after the last time I had the Boy ‘16 and it has matured a suspicious amount in that two years (while in a wine cooler). Nice, now dominated by caramelized burnt cherry, licorice, underbrush… which sounds good but finished inconsistent and astringent. Disappointing as I was fully expecting improvement. — 23 days ago

Vinos Comando

Rozas 1er Cru Vino de Paraje Grenache 2018

Exceptionally light extraction, high toned and infused. Crushed raspberry and cranberry, highly floral almost geranium, dried orange, black tea, dried herbs, potpourri, crushed rock, white pepper, 4-EP. Nice to see some definition fruit return this vintage but definitely microbial and marked by it. — 16 days ago

Château de Saint-Cosme

Little James Basket Press Vin de Pays d'Oc Grenache 2021

So delightful!
These rating scales don’t do justice to wonderful wines like this one. If you are looking for a 90+ banger of a wine, then you’ll miss the joy you get from this kind of straightforward pure expression of south Rhone Grenache. It’s so flexible and friendly with so many foods.

If you’ve been drinking $10 wines, then step up to this one and enjoy its clean friendly flavor. If you’ve been snobbishly drinking $25+ wines, then you’re also missing the simple joys of a great table wine like this.

Donnie brought over for dinner with us. Some of the best red wine I’ve had. Very smooth- hint of dark chocolate and plum with dark cherry. Loved it. — 4 days ago
