To The Rescue California Grenache

The 2005 ‘To The Rescue’ Grenache is a thrilling, highly novel new world dessert wine that is amongst the best of its kind that I have sampled. Aromatically, the wine immediately unveils copious red rose petals and menthol tones that combine with the intense red fruits and blood orange zest accents that all take their shape in the glass. Viscous and vibrant, with marvelous length, suggestions of red raspberry cordial, pipe tobacco and red cherry candy all thrive together on the mouth. The tension that runs through the core of the wine really impresses here. Fantastic now, this exemplary dessert wine will provide drinking enjoyment for at least another ten years.

Sparkling Applegate Valley Grenache Rosé 2018

This is a local, small batch Portland wine maker who decided to try her hand at sparkling with fantastic results. This Grenache sparkler is really dry with a hint of toast and solid Grenache fruit. Very drinkable. On special at the local Whole Foods for $17. If you can find it near you, get some. There isn’t much out on the market. — 18 days ago

Another brilliant example.
I’m running out of superlatives. We don’t normally drink Grenache, but I’m very happy we did tonight. This is titties! Blueberry tart nose and palate. Underripe tannins give this a powerful structure. Mid-palate is perfect. Somewhat oily texture finishes with polish and great stature.
Thank you Mikey and Rhonda!!!

Napa Valley Grenache 2013

Even keeled Grenache. Not a huge nose but well integrated tannins are a bonus to this lovely signal vineyard wine. Nice berries and earthy elements. — 16 days ago

Kruse Vineyard Grenache 2014

Transparent burgundy with orange tinged halo in the glass. On the nose, one detects dark cherry, black pepper, and barely a hint of floral notes. The dark cherries reappear in the mouth with a bit of smoky sweet complexity and medium tannins. Finish lingers a little. I’d say it is quite a nice versatile wine. — 10 days ago

Precession Grenache 2016

I don’t drink a ton of Grenache, but when I do they all have about the same nose and taste, but this 100% Grenache has an extra kick to it! Stands out in a crowd of Grenache, IMO🤷🏼‍♂️ — 18 days ago

Not my favorite L’Anglore, but still tasty. A little hot, but the pure fruit comes though on the finish. — 5 days ago
