Grenache Blend

Nose has dried raspberry, fresh raspberry, orange peel, watermelon rind, (light) savory green herbs and (light) candle wax.

Palate has dried strawberry, dried orange zest, red currant juice, rose petals and dry soil.

It's always a treat to drink rosé away from current release, the flavors change slightly and the acidity generally mellows; This is how we really enjoy them, just need patience.

2016 Blend: 49% Grenache, 19% Grenache Blanc, 13% Mourvedre, 12% Carignane, 4% Cinsault & 3% Rousanne.

24 Hour Update: Palate has picked up an awesome, and zingy, ripe strawberry note, like really good!

Sine Qua Non

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.

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 1985

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny color. Edges suggest its old. Notes of strawberry, raspberry, iron, roses. Some zing and power in the nose. Slaps your face when tasted. Sappy. Powerful impact. Long finish. Other guesses were in Burgundy land eg Griotte but I went with 90 Rayas. Bingo. — 4 days ago

One of two for a “night after” Friendsgiving with some turkey & dumpling soup. This is bright and elegant, and shows an excellent complex balance of red berries & cracked pepper. Impressive as always. — 13 days ago

Domaine Les Ondines

Vacqueyras Grenache Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

This spicy, Grenache-based Vacqueyras exudes Provençal lushness and charm, with abundant raspberry, bitter cherry and floral notes. Substantial enough for rich winter fare, the 2017 also has the energy to pair well with lighter foods. It’s still young, so a quick decant is in order. $25.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2019) — 10 days ago

Camins del Priorat Grenache Blend 2018

Deep ruby with hints of violet on the rim with pronounced aromas of:

•Primary aromas: Cherry, raspberry, blackberry, violets, lavander.
•Secondary aromas: Vainilla, baking spices.
•Tertiary aromas: I did not perceive any.

This is a youthful wine.

In the palate is dry, with medium + acidity, medium + velvety tannins, high alcohol, full body.

The wine has medium + intensity of flavors like: cherry, raspberry, blackberry, violets, lavander, vainilla and baking spices

The finish is medium +.

I think this wine is outstanding and it can be drunk now but has potential for ageing.

Pandora Red Rhone Blend 2014

Pretty closed even though I decanted it. Was still awesome - went great with the amazing Thanksgiving dinner that Vanessa prepared - but this one could probably use a couple of more years in the cellar before it really sings. — 13 days ago
