2014 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

Wine Spectator: "Ripe plum and chocolate flavors have a slightly candied character in this round, supple red, backed by sweet-tart acidity and light tannins that give way to a fresh finish. Drink now. 8,500 cases imported. (TM, Web-2016)" K&L Notes: In the region of Cariñena, the Garnacha grape variety finds a lovely expression, one which is less high octane and lighter on its feet than in some of the neighboring regions. This easy drinker is a terrific bargain for anyone looking for a house red or a wine for a celebration.

2014 Borsao "Tres Picos" Garnacha Campo de Borja Top Pick!
2014 Borsao "Tres Picos" Garnacha Campo de Borja

92 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet of ripe red and dark berries, incense and candied flowers, with a smoky mineral overtone and a hint of Asian spices. Intense, deeply pitched raspberry liqueur and cherry-cola flavors stain the palate while displaying a distinctly vibrant quality. Blends power, depth and finesse in a way that's uncommon at anywhere near this price point. Closes sweet, supple and very long, with velvety tannins coming in late to add shape and gentle grip. These bush vines date back to the early 1920s and yield less th ...Read More »

2013 Bodegas Palacios Remondo "La Montesa" Crianza Rioja

91 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 of 2016, Smart Buys* A thick texture carries plum tart, orange peel, toasted vanilla and anise flavors in this ripe version, balanced by juicy acidity. The spicy, berry-scented finish is long and pure. (TM)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: Alvaro Palacios has roots that run deep into the soil of Rioja. He was born into one the region's most prestigious winemaking families, the force behind Palacios Remondo, yet his interests have always been grander. Rather than slide simply into a position at the family winery, Alvaro decided to go out and do his own thing for a while... Read More »

2011 Sella e Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva

Vinous: "Bright red. Red cherry aromas are complicated by leather and game. Then more game in the mouth and slightly drying tannins, but with enough rich red fruit to keep this dancing on the palate. Finishes medium-long, fruity and chewy. Needs food. (ID)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: Sella & Mosca is a beautiful and historic winegrowing estate in Sardinia.

2013 Casa Castillo "El Molar" Garnacha Jumilla

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new kid on the block, the pure Garnacha 2013 El Molar carries the name of the vineyards where the vines were planted in 2006 on sand and chalk soils covered with gravel. It was foot trodden and fermented in cement vats and aged for nine months in used 500-liter oak barrels. In 2013 the vines worked until the very end as it was a year where there was more rain than average and a relatively cool summer (sometimes ripening occurs because of dehydration rather than true ripening) resulting in a perfect ripeness but quite contained. It is light ruby color, ...Read More »

2015 David & Nadia Grenache Paardeberg Swartland

Jancis Robinson: "Pale - very pale - ruby. Very sweet, almost strawberry jam, on the nose, yet with sufficient refreshment. Great liveliness, poise and real minerally chew - granite-derived? Really distinguished - a southern hemisphere answer to Gredos Garnacha? Such a lovely take on this variety. 17.5/20 points (JR)" (8/2016) K&L Notes: This is seriously outstanding wine; one of my favorite expressions of the varietal that I have ever tasted.

2015 Rogers and Rufus Grenache Rosé Barossa (Dry) (Previously $20)

Winemaker's notes: "Bright salmon pink in colour. A highly aromatic wine that opens with strawberries and cream, cherry blossom, talcum powder and a hint of pear skin.

2015 Alvaro Palacios "Camins del Priorat" Priorat

Wine Spectator: "This supple red has good energy, with vibrant acidity fueling the bright berry and cherry fruit. Fresh herb and vanilla accents add interest. Graceful and alluring." (10/2016) K&L Notes: Alvaro Palacios is undoubtedly one of the architects and primary reasons for Priorat's elevation to premier fine wine region over the past 20 years. While it has certainly not always been a smooth ride for the region, Palacios' wines have garnered a following in Spain and abroad, amongst critics and collectors, for their generous fruit, polished tannin structure, and minerality.

2015 Bernabeleva "Camino de Navaherreros" Garnacha Vinos de Madrid

This is as elegant an example of Garnacha (a.k.a. Grenache) as you are likely to find. Catalan winemaker Marc Isart Pinos is taking old vines, applying excellent viticultural work, fermenting in foudre (with some whole clusters used, as well as long maceration on the skins for further complexity/elegance), and bottling with a minimum of sulphur to create this beautiful, expressive wine. A good bit more tangy, racy and serious than most Grenache at this price, the Camino de Navaherreros is sure to please those who prefer layered nuance and energetic flavo... Read More »

2014 Thistledown "Vagabond" Old Vine Grenache Blewitt Springs McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $30+)

93 points James Halliday: "From Blewitt Springs. It's light in colour but they've nailed the palate. Licorice and raspberry with spice woven through, but it's just that little something extra - difficult to define - that this wine most certainly has. It's pretty and light, but it has substance." (8/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale ruby/purple, the 2014 The Vagabond Grenache has an intense red currant, red cherry and black raspberry nose with nuances of anise and violets. Full-bodied, rich and expressive, the velvety palate is loaded with fruit and has a very long, spicy finish. (LPB)" (8/2015)

2013 Stolpman Ballard Canyon Grenache

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "90+ points. The medium-bodied, sweetly fruited, and perfumed 2013 Grenache Ballard Canyon has lots of kirsch, wild strawberry, dried spice and chalky minerality to go with a taut, energetic and surprisingly structured feel on the palate. While the tannin stuck out right on opening, this came together nicely with time in the glass and I love its overall balance. Made in the more pretty, mid-weight California style, give this a year in the cellar and it should impress over the following 5-6 years. (JD)" (8/2015)

Bright, clear colour; quality grenache picked at precisely the right time has resulted in a wine with perfectly pitched red fruits, supple yet savoury tannins, and passing hints of herbs and chocolate; the tannin support is perfect, adding to the savoury nuances that are ever-present in the wine; poise and balance. Rhone Valley? Yes." (5/2015) 96 points James Suckling: "New name, same vineyard source for Pannell's Grenache. This has a beautiful sense of purity and pared back raspberry fr ...Read More »

2007 Domaine Santa Duc "Grand Grenache 66" Gigondas

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The newest wine is an amazing effort and could easily rival, if not eclipse the Hautes Garrigues with 5-6 years of bottle age. The 2007 Gigondas Grand Grenache 66 comes from some of the oldest Grenache vines Yves Gras has. The color is inky purple, and the wine more backward than the Les Hautes Garrigues, which is somewhat surprising. Notes of crushed rocks (chalk), kirsch, and blacker fruits intermixed with hints of truffle and forest floor are followed by a full-bodied, sensationally concentrated wine with massive extract and high tannins.

This intense, ruby-colored wine is from the extreme south of France, where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean and the vines grown on steep, schistous terraces. Rimage is a Catalan word which means vintage. Therefore a Rimage Banyuls is a fortified wine in which all grapes come from a certain vintage, much like a Colheita or vintage Port. Made from Grenache Noir, the wine's bouquet is full of ripe, red fruits with hints of vanilla spice. On the palate, flavors of chocolate and cherry dominate and the finish is long and elegant.

2013 Domaine Aubai Mema Grenache Vieilles Vignes "Lunatico" Gard Rouge

Winemaker Mark Haynes may be many things: entrepreneur, winemaker, tango dancer; but there is one thing that he is not—conventional. I first met Mark in New York at a trade fair and we immediately hit it off. I loved his wines, so this meeting led to a visit to his winery on my April buying trip. Mark is a spirited man who came to winemaking late in life when he realized that so many producers in the Gard region were turning their backs on winemaking and farming. The region is in the south of France about 30 minutes from Nimes. It was his summer home in... Read More »

Hailing from a high elevation (1100 meters at its height) vineyard of decomposed granite (otherwise known as sand) located an hour and a half or so west of Madrid (in fact, many Madrileños vacation here to avoid the sweltering summer heat), this wine is so bright, so high toned and pretty, intensely flavored yet precise (no baby fat here) that you may want to guzzle it down now with a nice meal, even though the stru...

Part of the wine aged in terracotta amphorae, which is the way to go for this wine in the future (100% since 2012, but in 2010 there was only one amphora and seven oak barrels). The nose has more red fruit than black, with notes of blood orange and licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, lively acidity and freshness.

Vivid crimson; vibrant acidity gives this complex wine the characteristics of a white wine with a formidable finish." K&L Notes: A beautiful dry, fresh, rose of Grenache. The fruit is picked early specifically for Rose production to retain lots of mouth watering acidity and very moderate alcohol (11.5%). This rose se... Read More »

2013 Mr. Riggs "The Magnet-Dogridge Vineyard" Old Vine Grenache McLaren Vale

94 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* Beefy and substantial in a varietal context though it's mostly packed with redcurrant and assorted red berried fruit. The point is it has a rich ripeness to it. It also comes packed with dried spices and sandy tannin, and manages to simultaneously create a serious impression and be perfumed and frivolous." 93 points James Suckling: "Beautiful florals here. This has a neat purity and alluring fruit perfume, lightly candied, the palate delivers flavors of blood orange, raspberry and pink grapefruit, tannins are lacy and lithe; a great example of Mclaren Vale ...Read More »

2012 Joan d'Anguera "Finca L'Argata" Montsant

91 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of ripe red berries, cola and allspice are joined by a smoky mineral note. The sweet, expansive palate offers juicy raspberry and cherry flavors that tighten slowly in the mid-palate. Finishes with gentle tannins, strong, spice-driven persistence and a floral pastille quality. (JR)" (1/2016) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A mix of floral and schisty cherry, raspberry and strawberry aromas are subtle, elegant and reserved. This blend of Garnacha and Syrah is fresh, but with a touch of jammy weight. Flavors of minerally plum and red currant are suppo ...Read More »

2013 Cayuse "God Only Knows" Walla Walla Valley Grenache

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Grenache seemed to handle the heat nicely in 2013 and the 2013 Grenache God Only Knows Armada Vineyard offers a gorgeous, rich, almost masculine style (especially when it’s tasted next to the No Girls Grenache) in its dark fruits, crushed herbs, mineral and leather scented profile. Even showing a touch of game with time in the glass, this beauty has fine tannin, plenty of fruit and a great finish, all suggesting it will drink nicely for another decade. Looking at these latest releases from Cayuse, the 2013s are surprisingly elegant and silky, with less ...Read More »

2010 McPrice Myers "L'Ange Rouge" Santa Barbara Grenache

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of all Grenache and McPrice’s take on a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the 2010 Grenache L’Ange Rouge is semi-opaque in color and offers up a perfumed, complex array of garrigue, sweet cherries, pepper and licorice that flows to a full-bodied, textured and lively palate. Quite fresh, with a solid core of acidity, as well as ripe tannin, it should be given another year or two in bottle and then consumed over the following 4-6 years. Drink now-2019. 91+ (JD)" (8/2013) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Spicy red and dark berry aromas are complicated by lavender and rose, with a se ...Read More »

2003 Domaine Marcoux Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What's a candidate for the wine of the vintage, the sensational 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (85% Grenache and 15% Syrah) is a sunny, Provencal, sexy and incredibly full-bodied beauty. With a still youthful ruby color, a big mid-palate, sweet tannin and tons of decadent aromas of currants, black cherries, garrigue, chocolate and spiced meats, this blockbuster Chateauneuf du Pape delivers incredible intensity and flavor (it's over 16% alcohol), yet stays lively, graceful and seamless. It's ready to go, but will keep through 2023. (JD) ...Read More »

2012 Château Coupe Roses "Granaxa" Minervois

Granaxa is one of two luxury cuvees from Coupe Roses, a leading domaine in the high Minervois. Granaxa, a.k.a. Grenache, takes its name from southern France's ancient dialect. This savory wine was made in older barrels with a dollop of Syrah and has stunningly pure red fruit flavors of Grenache with a rich, mouthfilling texture. Francoise Le Calvez was the first modern producer to make wine in barrel in Minervois, home to some of Frances' finest values.

2005 Pierre Usseglio "Mon Aieul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L)

96 points Wine Spectator: "Shows the great embedded structure of the vintage, with a strong graphite undertow pushing the layers of blackberry, boysenberry and plum fruit, while additional sweet spice, mocha and bittersweet cocoa notes fill in the background. Packed with fruit and terroir, with a gorgeous mouthfeel. Best from 2008 through 2027. (JM)" (10/2007) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing the firm, slightly masculine (even austere) edge of the vintage, the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul offers terrific richness in its black fruits, asphalt, roasted herbs, tar and licorice. Big, full-bodied, ...Read More »
