Grenache

Quivira Vineyard and Winery

Dry Creek Valley Grenache 2014

Nicely done. Initially reserved nose gets more boisterous with air, and shows sappy raspberry ooze and kirsch, with some underlying stony minerals. Rich, ripe, dense fruit is buoyed nicely with acidity, it’s full bodied and the dark stoney finish has a bit of tannin. It likely will be better in a year or two. — 6 days ago

The Barrel Project Scorched Earth Vineyard Grenache 2013

Greg Ballington
9.0

Just grabbed from the Great Falls Wine Outlet and decided to coravin a bit. Deep garnet with a touch of ruby. Layered nose with tons of dark cherries, purple flower petals, roses and earthiness. Solid acidity and medium tannins (5/10). Light plus to medium bodied and layered with strawberries, cherries and lavender. Dry with a medium plus finish. Would be nice to see how it develops with some air and age. Drink till 2021. — 17 days ago

Verve Grenache 2012

Greg Ballington
9.1

Light ruby red. Quite savory on the nose with notes of dried herbs, iron, and spices. Complexity is definitely there too with crushed flower petals and dark red currants. Medium tannins (6/10) and dry throughout. Savory palate too with layers of flowers, anise, kirsch cherries and twigs. Medium to medium plus bodied with a long finish. Wish we had another bottle in the cellar. Drink till 2023. — 24 days ago

The Boy Grenache 2014

The Boy, aka José Altuve, packs a giant punch. A boozy kirsch is fused with pickled strawberry and loaded with pine and white pepper while incorporating cured meat and olive tapenade. 100% Grenache that’s around 50/50 from Wahluke Slope’s Northridge Vineyard and the Powerline Vineyard in southern Walla Walla. — 6 days ago

Serrat

Yarra Valley Grenache Noir 2016

Pale to mid Crimson. Primary notes of Rose petals and a faint hint of raspberry. Light bodied Juicy and refreshing with fine light tannins. Amazing to think of the versatility of the Grenache grape to go from this to a full bodied incarnation like Chateau Rayas for example. Made to be drunk now. Very much hand made with only 580 bottles made. — 15 days ago

Alexis Establet Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2012

Popped and poured. This is in a much more fun spot than last year. The nose is a big bowl of blackberries and a bit of sandalwood which I found very intriguing and quite delightful to be completely frank. Delicious wine with dense dark fruits and some spice on the palate. This bottle did not come across hot like some notes from others have indicated. Tannin is still a touch firm but it's definitely well within the range of enjoyment at this point. Finishes with a flourish, lasting for 30 seconds. Again, the Alexis Establet comes through as a consistent and overall wonderful representation of 100% old-vine Grenache from the appellation. Drink now or enjoy over the next 3-5 years. — 2 days ago
