Rhône Grenache Blend

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2008

Between 2007 and 2009. Une verite de la palice but with great significance in the wine world. Light year, very feminine wine, very evolved, reduction in nose needs to be drunk now. — 6 days ago

Sweet, cherry flavours, floral secondary aromas of violet, also tertiary leather, smokiness. Long lasting smooth finish. Medium to high acidity.

Domaine Santa Duc

Les Aubes Vacqueyras Grenache Blend 2008

Nice wine with pleasing tannins. It was softer than I expected at this stage of its maturity. Raisin and stewed plums with pleasing tannins. Could have used a bit more acidity. — 7 days ago

Domaine Saint Préfert

Réserve Auguste Favier Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012

Dark ruby in color with short brick rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, blueberries, plums, light vanilla, forest floor, tobacco, earth, light oak, dark chocolates, black pepper, spices, wet leaves and graphite.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, sweet cherries, plums, over ripen strawberries, raspberries, earth, light vanilla, wood, leaves, river rocks and spices.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a great CDP from a good vintage, that is drinking very nicely now. Very tasty and easy to drink. Well balanced with a nice mouthfeel and nice complexity.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly. Tangy, tasty and interesting.

At the beginning of its drinking life, and will age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years. If you can find the 2015 vintage, grab it.

I paired it with cheeses, meats, olives and light appetizers.

A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Cinsault and 10% Syrah.

15% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Domaine Charvin

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2001

Classic CDP. Short decant due to some sediment. Medium reddish, brown color. Massive olive on the nose. Wine has more olives on the palate along with cough medicine and cherry candy. Sweeter than expected. Medium plus finish. I’m not much of a CDP fan but this was a solid recommendation and I enjoyed it.! — 6 days ago

Domaine du Cayron

Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2010

Nice and savoury with notes of dried raspberry. Barely medium bodied. A great food wine in this case Chicken with stir fried vegetables and gnocchi. A fine example of mature Gigondas made by 3 sisters. Like this Grenache dominant southern Rhone style - one of the 1001 Wines. — 13 days ago

Drank 4/20 /19. Excellent pairing with grilled lamb kebabs.

Nose of red cherry, strawberry, cinnamon candy, and a touch of herb de Provence. Juicy red cherry and some herbs on the palate, backed by medium tannins. Medium finish, that is perhaps a touch too short. This really sings with the food pairing, although it is nice on its own.

3/22/8/4/3 + 50

An excellent value at $14
