Sonoma County Grenache 2015

Beautiful extraction for grenache. Dry Creek Valley wine, estate fruit. This wine has a heck of a nose on it. I'll give the nose alone a 92. Lots of brambly fruit, herbs (almost like basil?). VERY herbal nose. On the palate, some acidity on the front, but mostly rounded, builds to a black cherry, acidity building to the middle and finish where mint, allspice, raspberry pie kind of meet and mingle. This was a 'rando' recommendation when we were there in Dry Creek last year, and really glad we stopped. — 4 days ago

Alfred's Clarendon Dry Grown Grenache 2016

Earthy perfume with twiggy notes and a touch of wet nappy. No oak? Very much a natural wine with a palate of raspberries, loamy savoury flavours and soft tannins. A groovy label. Complete with crown seal like opening an old bottle of beer with a bottle opener. The whole quirky package will appeal to Millenials in CBD Cafes and Bistros. — 3 days ago

Sine Qua Non

In the Crosshairs Grenache

After tasting a lot of Grenache in Los Olivos, this 2006 was head and heels above all. Unfair comparison to 2015/16s but this was a treat. — 9 days ago

Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard Grenache 2010

An unexpected treat to try this CA Grenache with a few years on it. Was not expecting the expression this wine garnered. Still bringing a great deal of floral notes (shifting to dried flowers & herbs with age) but the acidity is there to provide lift to the darker fruits this wine is beginning to show. Caught in a fun position, it truly evoked the duality of tasting the properties of 'light & darkness'. Sleeper pick. — 2 days ago

Pignan Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache

One of the trick wines brought to a Burg tasting. Only remember the floral nose with a bit of greenness (stems) and tinge of sweetness at the end. The last bit should have revealed the producer. On the second day, the wine is very much more Rhone like and reminds me of Fonsalette but much more ethereal and airy. Nose is dominated by figs compote, prunes, raisins. Luscious and has nice density that I don't come across from Burgs. Lovely! — 10 days ago
