Les Amidyves Côtes du Ventoux Grenache Blend 2014

@Delectable Wine - This is majority, if not 100%, Syrah. It’s not a Grenache blend.

I was skeptical. I usually don’t like Syrah from the Southern Rhône. It’s usually blocky and uninteresting. But this. Put this blind in a group of Saint Josephs and no one bats an eye. Cracked pepper, dark berry, granite, and pink grapefruit rind. So lively in the mouth. Clingy and stoney. Delicious.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2005

Brambly nose of kirsch and licorice initially led to an angular but pure, classically Grenache palate. Fast forward 3 hrs in the decanter and every hard edge ironed out, soft, ripe red berry around a kirschy-smooth core. This’ll hold for years but don’t wait if you can give it a decant. — 18 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. — 4 days ago

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Clos de Gilroy Grenache

Great old vine grenache play on a GSM blend (except no M). Strawberry-rhubarb and herb on the nose joined by candied citrus rind and white pepper on the palate. At $18 in New York, you can’t beat it. — 10 days ago

Law Estate Wines

Beguiling by Law 2011

Has become so much more integrated with time and develops nicely over an evening. Ripe extracted but Syrah balances out grenache dominant blend. — 10 days ago

Famille Perrin

Les Cornuds Vinsobres Grenache Blend

Gosh I love these flavorful and fresh Rhone village wines--particularly when they come in at a drinkable ALC; in this case 13.5%. Drinking beautifully now and for the foreseeable future. But why wait? Vintage: 2013. — 4 days ago

@Marc Moret was the alcohol held in check? Thanks

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. — 5 days ago

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Mourvedre Rosé Blend 2014

Grapefruit and nectarine and blood orange, taking on an interesting savory edge after a few years in bottle, pronounced floral finish with noticeable heat. Not a summer sipper but a serious, hearty rose. Always a great way to drink pink on Valentine’s Day! — 6 days ago
