Grenache Noir

S.C. Pannell

Grenache 2012

A rich crimson in colour. Aromas initially of fine quality leather but little fruit until you assess the palate which shows raspberry and mineral and fine grained Tannins with some grip. A good straight Grenache showing McLaren Vale to be the best source of pristine Grenache fruit in Australia IMO. I wouldn’t keep it for more than 5 more years but good drinking right now. — 5 days ago

Chat Fou Côtes du Rhône Grenache 2017

I was expecting this to be weird (blend of Grenache and “white varieties” whatever that means) but it was clean, fruity, and had more tannins than I expected. (Still on the low end but they were there.) — 14 days ago

Sur Echalas Vineyard Grenache 2016

(Tasted on 7/30/18 with Christophe Baron at Cayuse)
The ‘Sur Echalas Vineyard’ Grenache is a stunning new bottling by superstar vigneron Christophe Baron and assistant vigneronne Elizabeth Bourcier. The head-turning bouquet entices with potpourri, wild strawberry, tobacco leaf, wet stone and shades of Umami with blood orange zest and charcuterie on this highly complex and satisfying nose. The palate is lithe and light on its feet, as the wine simply dazzles across the palate. The marvelous salinity produces gobs of mouth-watering acidity. Leather, tarragon, orange zest, red cherry candy and shades of guava puree with white truffle shavings all round out this highly gratifying palate. The range imparted in the wine is second to none. The texture to this wine is also absolutely gorgeous as the wine has a seamless quality that gracefully dances across the mid-palate. Monumental, profound and a delight to savor now, this ‘Sur Echalas’ Grenache up there with the best of its kind in North America. Drink 2019-2029- 99

Sucette Vine Vale Barossa Valley Grenache 2016

Quite the Grenache. Gushing with notes of raspberries, pomegranate and the right amount earthiness. More old world in style... own rooted vines planted in the late 1800’s. So cool — 15 days ago

Alexander Valley Grenache 2013

Yeah, it smells like new world Grenache (a little rhubarb and tangy red berries), but with a little plumpness and fat dark berries that reminds me fleetingly of Alexander Valley Merlot. Round and flavorful, very satisfying flavors to go with my 🌮s. A little peppery heat at the end. — 9 days ago

Red Domus Roussillon Villages Syrah Grenache Noir 2015

Blackberries and blueberries, with some raspberries initially, which fade some after opening. Also salt, with hints of green bell peppers, caramel, and pork fat. Good acidity to balance, low-ish tannins, and very approachable. Wine Spectator said 90 points, and I have to agree. — 7 days ago

Zaca Mesa

Estate Vineyard Rosé of Grenache 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

Far from an easygoing wine, the Zaca Mesa’s 2018 Rosé of Grenache possesses terrific depth and tons of textural richness in its bold Grenache fruit and floral flavors, making it an excellent choice for drinking alone or as a companion at the dinner table. $20.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2019) — 20 days ago
