Grenache

6745 visitors
Grenache is probably the most widely planted variety of red wine grape in the world. It ripens late, so needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain and in the south of France. It is generally spicy, berry-flavoured and soft on the palate with a relatively high alcohol content, but it needs careful control of yields for best results. It tends to lack acid, tannin and colour, and is usually blended with other varieties such as Syrah, Carignan and Cinsaut.
More information on Grenache
Food Pairing: Pairs well with grilled lamb chops, smoked or dried meats, steaks and stews. Pour Grenache with barbecue ribs and even try with a salty smoked fish.

2005 Grenache

A trip to the southern Rhone without the airfare! Possibly our biggest, richest version of Grenache to date! Our vineyard was frosted badly in mid-April 2005. The resulting tiny ...morecrop produced this intense, generous wine. Mouthfilling blueberry, cranberry and super-ripe strawberry flavors are balanced by the crushed rose petal aromas. We'd consider this wine a medium weight that will go with many dishes, including duck and lamb. 363 cases produced.

2002 Garnacha Grenache Reserve

This is one of our specialty niche wines that is hard to find anywhere else. Grenache is typically a light, fruity wine used for blending. It can be similar to Pinot Noir in flavor ...more and texture, though the color is a lighter red. However, the grenache out of our source vineyard in 2002 showed a very distinct warm spice that we thought should come forward on its own. We kept it in oak an extra year to beef up the tannins. A lot of warm spice (e.g. cloves/cinnamon) come through on this unique vintage. Grapes grown in Guadalupe Valley, Baja California, wine made in Escondido.

2003 Grenache (Private Reserve)

This is a French style red wine that was produced from different clones of 100% Grenache grapes. The wine was aged in small oak barrels to produce a round and luscious varietal ch ...morearacter. This is a thoroughly enjoyable wine with a classic Grenache spice that pairs nicely with mildly-spiced white meats (pork or chicken).

2004 Grenache
Santa Barbara County

Grenache seems to be enjoying more and more success around the world. In the past, we have primarily used Grenache as a blending grape for wines like Revelation. But last year we m ...moreade our first 100% Grenache wine (called Gypsy, this year we are calling it Grenache) and we had outstanding results! (And feedback!) So, we are very excited to once again have this wine back in the tasting room. Our Grenache was primarily grown on Rodney’s Vineyard at the Fess Parker winery. This is one of the last blocks we pick every year and 2004 was no exception. After picking the grapes in mid October and fermenting the grapes for 15 days, we aged the wine in 100% Cadus French oak barrels. We decided to put the wine into year-old barrels to ensure that the oak flavors would not be too dominant in the finished wine.

This wine has wonderful aromatics and shows bright cherry & strawberry fruit flavors on the palate. You’ll find enticing cinnamon/spice notes reminiscent of apple pie along with slight smoky, toasty oak flavors. It is a wine with good balance, structure and soft, approachable tannins. We believe it is an age-worthy wine, but also bet it won’t last long in your cellar after you
