2015 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena Top Pick!
2015 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

Wine Spectator: "Black cherry, leafy and chocolate flavors mingle in this round red. Gentle tannins and lively acidity lend grip. Straightforward, but shows some depth. Drink now through 2019. (TM)" (11/2016) 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.

2015 Borsao "Tres Picos" Garnacha Campo de Borja Top Pick!
2015 Borsao "Tres Picos" Garnacha Campo de Borja

92 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Powerful aromas of black currant and candied cherry pick up incense, vanilla and exotic spice nuances with air. Deeply concentrated dark berry and spicecake flavors are complicated by notes of smoky minerals and floral pastilles, while a subtle peppery quality adds spiciness. Supple tannins give shape to the very long, smoke-tinged finish, where the floral note echoes strongly. (JR)" (5/2017) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, and clearly one of the greatest values in the wine world, is the 2015 Tres Picos.

Long, long finish. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignane. 11,000 vines per hectare. Tiny production. The greatest red of Lazio? Crazy stuff." (7/2016) K&L Notes: Grenache, Syrah, Carignan. All head-trained vines, 4500 vines per acre, 1,000-1,300 foot elevation.

2015 Honoro Vera Garnacha Calatayud

90 points Vinous: "(fermented in small stainless steel tanks and aged for two months in three- and four-year-old French oak barrels) Saturated ruby. Ripe dark fruit and floral scents, along with suggestions of licorice and woodsmoke. Sweet and pliant on the palate, offering juicy blueberry, spicecake and violet pastille flavors and a bracing undercurrent of smoky minerality. The smooth, persistent, blue-fruit-dominated finish features very good focus and silky, slow-building tannins. There's outstanding value here." (5/2017)

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)

2016 Alvaro Palacios "Camins del Priorat" Priorat

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. Palacios' wines have garnered a following in Spain and abroad, amongst critics and collectors, for their generous fruit, polished tannin structure, and minerality. Camins is the winery's softer, entry level Priorat where the Garnacha and Cariñena base is supported by Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot.

This big, rich and nicely concentrated Grenache has more mid-palate depth and concentration than most and is a no-brainer purchase to enjoy over the coming 5-6 years.

Honorío Rubio is a Riojano white and rosé specialist. In a land best known for its incredibly age-worthy reds, among many die-hards out there it is undoubtedly the traditional whites which represent Rioja's finest and most original wines. We would add as well the barrel aged rosés, which are incredibly rare (Lopez de Heredia's has not been available for over 5 years, and we hear that they will finally have a little bit of the next release, 2008, in 2018!)

Emporda is a small Catalan D.O. located along the Costa Brava, in the heart of Salvador Dali country! Espelt is a leading producer for value-oriented Garnatxa (Grenache). Always a popular favorite, this 2015 is fantastic. Floral and mixed berry aromas lead to a juicy and racy palate, with blackberry and floral notes, subtle candied and floral aspects and a pleasing, subtle bitter snap to the finish. A lot to like in this Grenache!

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)

2015 Honorio Rubio "Aron" Garnacha Rioja

This is 100% old vine Garnacha, from an area in southwestern Rioja Alta where the quality of the Garnacha has been coveted by at least a few of the new generation of talented winemakers in the area. Aron is the name of Honorio's second son, and a fitting tribute with it's intense red Garnacha fruit. Even at 15% ABV, there is plenty of cut and freshness to balance things out. It is also quite educational to taste this Garnacha - a grape which is the main component of Honorio's tremendous rosé wines (both the Lías Finas and Castillo de Vinas) - on its own....

This blend of 70% Cariñena and 30% Garnacha is all juicy mixed berry fruits, round in texture with a generous, mouth-filling quality that is open knit and delicious to drink.

In the cooler, fresher 2014 vintage, it is a fantastic wine, one which shows more dark fruited intensity than the Les Terrasses, but also greater concentration and a higher perceived acidity as well which combine to create a real tightrope act - in liquid form! A fantastic example of the quality of wines at this iconic producer, as well as the very high caliber of the 2014 vintage.

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.

Dried leaves, tobacco, wild flowers and spices waft from the glass in a delicate, nuanced Grenache. Eccentric in style, the 2014 is not as varietally as some of the other wines in the range, but instead provides plenty of insights into Osborne's deeply personal style.

This is a component of the 2015 vintage of Duval’s newest-release Annexus grenache planted in 1858 in Springton. (Barrel Sample)" 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "(94+) Made from 100% Grenache, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Annexus has a seriously intense perfume of crushed cherries and black raspberries with roses and violets plus suggestions of anise, cinnamon stick and dark chocolate. The rich, powerful, concentrated ...Read More »

2006 Sine Qua Non "Raven Series" California Grenache

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, largely from the 11 Confessions Vineyard, with a small amount from Bien Nacido, spent 21 months in barrel. It is really strutting its stuff now, and showing even better than my original note predicted in August of 2009. The wine has loads of meat, licorice, smoke, charcoal and graphite, as well as huge peppery, blackberry and black cherry notes. Full-bodied, with great acidity, nicely integrated tannin, an admirable mouthfeel and tremendous length, this killer Grenache is still young and probably 3-5 years away f ...Read More »

2013 Epoch "Sensibility-Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Grenache

93 points Vinous: "Brilliant violet color. Sexy smoke- and spice-accented aromas of ripe red berries and incense, with a mineral topnote. Juicy, penetrating and pure, conveying wonderful lift to its raspberry and lavender flavors. Closes with resonating spiciness, silky tannins and a strong echo of candied red fruit. (JR)" (9/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fermented in concrete tanks before being moved to neutral barrels, the 100% Grenache 2013 Sensibility offers lots of pretty strawberry and darker-edged Grenache fruit, exotic flowers, mint and spice to go with a juicy, elegant, medium to full-bodi ...Read More »

1998 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Wine Spectator: "Displays gorgeous, savage aromas and flavors, with crushed juniper berry, hot tar, sage leaf, roasted chestnut and grilled beef notes that scorch across the palate. Still rugged on the finish, though the color at the rim and the intensity and range of the aromas show that this is evolving. (JM)" (9/2007) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape from the Michel family was firing on all cylinders for this retrospective, and while I’ve had bottles stateside that seem tired, this was beautiful on all accounts. Garrigue, truffle, leather and plenty of ripe fruit flow to a ...Read More »

2014 Torrin "The Maven" Paso Robles Grenache

97 points Rhone Report: "Made from 100% Grenache, all from the estate Torrin Vineyard, the 2014 The Maven sports a medium ruby, translucent color as well as a fabulous bouquet of framboise, crushed flowers, dried strawberries and incense. Deep, rich and concentrated, with building tannin, this full-bodied beauty is certainly up with some of the finest Grenaches coming out California. In addition, I struggle to think of another Grenache from California made in this ethereal style at this quality level. This cuvée was mostly destemmed and spent 18 months in 400-liter French oak pu ...Read More »
