Grenache Blend

Château Simone

Palette Grand Cru de Provence Rosé Grenache Blend 2015

I tend to love the weird wines made from masters. Think Paolo Bea Arboreous or Joly Coulee de Serrant or LDH Rose.

Everything about this is artificially flavored candy. It looks like cherry lollipop and smells like red Kool-Aid and Robitusson. Tastes like watermelon Jolly Rancher.

Powerful and viscous as hell, even hot. I know these can age forever and I’d love to see an older bottle. Tons of fun.

Alban Estate Vineyard Grenache 2013

Opened this 2 days ago. It was good then...but it’s SO much better now. No extraordinary measures for storage: put the cork back in and put it in the fridge. Fantastic balance, layers of flavor, and a finish that goes on forever. If you have this in your cellar, let it sit for 3-4 years. Otherwise, decant it for 6 hours and then enjoy. Awesome. — 13 days ago

Clarendon Hills

Old Vines Clarendon Grenache 2010

The 2010 ‘Romas’ is a dazzling effort at now nine years of age. Tannic and strangely backwards upon opening, this Grenache considerably benefits from a one hour decant. Once awoken, the wine shows a gorgeous array of aromatics from ripe rose petals to potpourri and exotic spices that meld with the deep red currants and red cherry compote that take shape in the glass. The soft, silky texture entices, as does the bright sense of minerality. Unveiling its plush mouthfeel, the ‘Romas’ plays with suggestions of kirsch cordial and boysenberry jam with minerals, orange zest and lovely earthy undertones. Complex and delightful at this stage, the 2010 ‘Romas’ will have at least another decade left in the cellar. Drink 2019-2033- 93 — 3 days ago

Machete Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

Found another ‘15, a blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah & Grenache and aged for 10 months on French oak (40% new). Deep Ruby with aromas of black fruits, cedar and sweet spice. On the palate, ripe plums, jammy blueberries and sweet cherry with slight oak and vanilla spice, pours like syrup. Lingering finish, good length allowing the soft tannins to open in your mouth. Good structure, great mouthfeel, ending with pure fruit and dash of minerality, drinks well now. Produced with 12 different labels. Wow! — 13 days ago

Les Darons Languedoc Grenache Blend 2016

Porsche Calgary doing it up right with an excellent red blend from the languedoc that is bold and powerful with dark fruit, and hints of baking spice. Long lasting finish. Superb. — 8 days ago

Les Chemins de Sève

Terre d'Aygues Principauté d'Orange Syrah Blend 2015

Les chemins de Sève, terre d'aygues, principauté d'orange, 2015, Luc Massart. Grenache, syrah and alicante.

Blood orange, garrigue, olive, strawberry, blackberry and a bit of heat. The plate is very well done with a strong acid backbone, some matter, some bright red fruit, a soft touch on the side but drying tannins in mid palate. Long rather dry finish with a bright fruit. This is a cool wine!

Kale Wines

Kick Ranch Vineyards Home Run Cuvée Grenache Blend 2013

The 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel from Tablas Creek was a tough act to follow, but this elegant Rhône blend from Sonoma just did that.

The nose was quite similar with aroma of blue fruits and earthy elements with hint of violet, it was the palate that set it apart: soft, complex and deep, with great texture and beautiful acidity that adds the tension. Elegant and seamless.

Kale Anderson was the long time wine maker at Pahlmeyer, and Kale wines are all vineyard-specific. Worth seeking out.

Crux

Russian River Valley GSM 2014

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of plums, cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, cloves, coffee, chocolates, peppercorn, tobacco, leaf earth, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, red currants, oak, smoke, vegetables, vanilla, earth, tobacco, spices, coffee, cola, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Spicy finish with soft tannins and tangy strawberries.

This is a very nice GSM blend from California.

Balanced and tangy with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy with enough fruits for the earthy notes.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (90 minutes).

A blend of 58% Grenache 22% Mourvedre, 18% Syrah and 2% Petite Sirah.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats, cheeses and light appetizers.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$46.
