Grenache Noir

Mayacamas Vineyards

Napa Valley Rose Grenache 2020

Out of place in the fall. Peach color reveals what’s to come. Tart fruit nose leads to lively acid on the frontal pallete and surprising round, and fleshy mouthfeel. Save your bottles for summer. — 2 days ago

Château Rayas

Réservé Pignan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2007

The colour of Tawny Port - burnished and faded. A gorgeous red fruited perfume together with dried herbs - intoxicating rich concentrated aromas belies the fading colour. Rich stewed raspberries on the palate with earthy notes - a tarry note but dominated by the raspberry - overall delicious with M+ Intensity. Amazingly bloody good for a 2nd wine admittedly to the mighty Chateau Rayas. One of the best 100% Grenaches ever for me. — 13 days ago

@Ceccherini Cristiano Totally Cec. Have not had a new world Grenache that approaches this quality.

McKahn Family Cellars

Shenandoah Valley Grenache 2018

I have discovered a new favorite. McKahn Family Cellars. This is their Grenache 2018. The bouquet is full of spice and rhubarb pie. The initial palate is somewhat sour on the beginning but then diffuses into a nice dark berry flavor. This is followed by spice and dark chocolate. Then comes the oak and smoke. The finish is semidry and leaves you thirsting for more. — 18 days ago

Tablas Creek Vineyard

Paso Robles Grenache 2018

Light brick in the glass… shockingly light in color, aroma, mouth-feel and finish… BUT the perfect lively acidity makes for a very pleasant dinner partner. Not a hint of jammyness…varietally correct? Who knows, but memorable comfort food match w/home, seared farm burgers, fried potatoes and onions, and late harvested beets with honey snd citrus zest. — 11 days ago

Old Vines Navarra Grenache 2018

Extremely rustic. Aromas and flavors of cedar, wet stones, leather, chinese five spice with a very small amount of cherry fruit. A bit sharp on the finish. Better with food. Give this one a long decant. Better the second day. — 9 days ago

Isenhower Cellars

Rara Avis Yakima Valley Grenache 2017

New vintage. Ruby red, excellent clarity. Moderate pigment extraction. Red fruit, cherry peel and berry flavors with a graphite, black pepper, black olive and seed bitterness finish. Tangerine peel aftertaste. Dense flavor profile, good acid, not your typical WA state Grenache. — 15 days ago

Bodega Comando

La Bruja Avería Rozas de Puerto Real Grenache 2019

Preposterously good for its price point. Has a wonderful blackberry-tinged, brambly, feral Spanish garrigue thing going on on the nose. Burgundian approach to Grenache with minimal extraction and lively acids. Sweet, smokey, tart, salty and bright on the palate. An almost floral herbal aspect. Fantastic. — 18 days ago

I’m sad I never got to meet Taras Ochotoa of @ochotabarrels (RIP). I’ve enjoyed his wines over the years, including this incredibly fresh and bright and lean rendition of Grenache that is far closer to Cerasuolo than to Châteauneuf. Herbal and sour cherry notes transition to strawberry and red currant sourness tinged with dried herbs and flowers. Angular, prominent acidity and barely any tannins to speak of. A fun, gulpable wine that is great with a slight chill on it. ⁣ — 13 days ago

Château de Saint-Cosme

Hominis Fides Gigondas Grenache 2018

Very nice. Leather, tobacco and dark fruits. Well rounded already, but it is young and will mature over the years. — 7 days ago

Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2009

After only a half hr this was singing. Dark fruit followed by leather and some powerful but smooth tannins. Very different from the Telegraphe Crau of same vintage. But delicious in it’s own right. Drinking beautifully right now. — 19 days ago
