Grenache Blend

Domaine du Gour de Chaulé

Cuvée Tradition Gigondas Grenache 2016

Delectable Wine
9.5

Vivid ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and pit fruits, potpourri and garrigue, and an exotic spice note emerges in the glass. Stains the palate with sweet raspberry, cherry and lavender pastille flavors that steadily put on weight with air. Conveys a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes extremely long and floral, with fine-grained tannins lending discreet grip. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)

Domaine des Costes

Grande Réserve Pécharmant 2010

Beautiful wine. Has a big presence but is well balanced and shows good structure. On the palate, it is dense and complex with currents of anise, loam, and graphite enriching a dark-fruited foreground. Displays noticeable earth and herbal qualities in an otherwise fruit-forward package. Possesses a long and balanced finish. Very well done. — 5 days ago

Château Rayas

Pignan Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2000

Classic Rayas elegance while still showing good intensity. Evolved so much over the course of dinner. Black cherry cola, cherry liquor, exotic spices and hints of smoke. Finishes long and seductive showing really impressive depth. 86d. — 5 days ago

Kobler Estate Winery

Grenache Rosé 2016

Even at half price from the winery I’m dissatisfied, all 3. Now I see why they were on sale
Rose of Syrah was probably the worst, horrible nose.
Bacigalupi Chardonnay was not bad but didn’t have the stuffing it had last time I opened one.

No worries, perfect for tacos 🌮 or something else spicy 🌶, always good to have some wash down juice that didn’t cost much.

9.5

Glistening violet color. Displays highly perfumed red/blue fruit liqueur, exotic spice and floral oil qualities on the expressive nose. Alluring sweet and broad on the palate, offering sweet Chambord, blueberry and spicecake flavors that are sharpened by a building mineral flourish. Shows sharp definition and spicy cut on a long, penetrating finish that leaves sweet floral pastille and red berry preserve notes behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)

Massaya

Cap Est Beqaa Valley Red Blend 2013

The second one is a Grenache- Mourvedre blend. Showing red fruits with wood, spices, peppercorn, coffee, earth, licorice, mint and black tea.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Medium plus in finish with nice tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 7 year old is fruity, yet showing lots of earth notes. A blend of new and old world wine.

Bigger than the GSM, with a nicer mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.

A blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Mourvedre. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Both these wines were very unique and kept on changing every 15 minutes in the decanter. I love this kind of wines.

The Ditch Digger Grenache Blend 2017

9.5

Brilliant magenta. Heady, mineral-laced red berry preserve, spicecake and floral pastille aromas are complicated by suggestions of smoky minerals, vanilla and exotic spices. Juicy, sharply delineated raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show superb concentration and turn sweeter with air. The sappy, extremely long finish is framed by smooth, slow-building tannins that fold effortlessly into the wine's plush, alluringly sweet red fruit. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)
