Grenache

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Cuvée R Rancho Solo Grenache 2014

100% Grenache from sunny and beautiful Monterey, CA.
Nose has an earthy, grilled cherry/blackberry, rosemary and lavender.
Palate has a beautiful dark fruit compote, leather, mineral dust and fading oak/vanilla influence.
A much better bottle with an addition year of resting, since our prior experience. Tannins have mellowed, but the finish persists. 2022+ on future bottles.

24hr Update: Stunning flavors of ripe plum, cherry and light baking spice. This garners an extra point (92->93) today!

Old Vines Clarendon Grenache 2001

Mature Grenache does not get better than this. Unfortunately this is my last bottle. The aftertaste stayed and lingered on for more than a minute. — 15 hours ago

Sine Qua Non

Turn the Whole Thing Upside Down Grenache 2009

Nearly black in color. Aromatics are profound upon pulling the cork. Tannins are fully resolved, but balanced acid remains. Manfred’s Grenache expression is so sexy. Dark fruit, herbs, hints of tar, earth. Do I detect horny violets? PnP ready. — 13 days ago

Grenache 2014

Almost garnet on the color. Raging high acidity and dried red fruits on the nose which reminds me of Northern Italian wines. Smooth tannin and nice finish. A killer in blind tasting. Very distinctive — 20 days ago

The Vincent Single Vineyard Grenache

A refreshingly complex wine from The Barossa Valley. Single vineyard old vine Grenache. An enticing nose with lots of fruit, cinnamon and some oak. Fantastic red currant, cinnamon and licorice on the palate with a little black pepper. A great lingering finish of currants and pepper. A really good wine. — 17 days ago

La Bruja Avería Rozas de Puerto Real Grenache 2015

14.5% alcohol and not a trace of fat. Grenache seems to be unique in that it can maintain elegance and femininity at this level ripeness. Translucent ruby color with mixed woodsy aromas, black berries, and red cherries. Full bodied but lean and tame. Stamped with intention this is loaded with personality and a great buy. — 18 days ago

Ripper Paso Robles Grenache 2016

Quite a bit more flavor than the Herman Story, IMO
But is a bit younger so the dry tannins are still present
