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

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.

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.

Camins is the winery's softer, entry level Priorat where the Garnacha and Cariñena base is supported by Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot.

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 »

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.

2009 Sine Qua Non "This Is Not an Exit" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache
Bid on this bottle of 2009 Sine Qua Non "This Is Not an Exit" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (96RP, 95ST, 94VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More open, upfront and sexy, the 2009 Grenache This is Not an Exit is comprised of 79% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 3% Viognier, and 3% Roussanne that spent 31 months in roughly 35% new French oak. Showing overflowing richness, with notions of incense, spice cake, potpourri, and creamy raspberry fruit, it is a full-bodied, voluptuous, and decadent Grenache geared for drinking over the coming decade or so. Drink now-2023. About as good as it gets across the board, these singular, incredible wines are the result of an obsessive attention to detail at all stages of the wine making process. There is no secret or hidden magic going on here. The incredibly talented and down-to-earth Manfred Krankl simply walks the walk as opposed to only talking about attention to detail or offering up the standard, wine is made in the vineyard comments.

2012 Sine Qua Non "Rattrapante - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A perfect wine any way you look at it, the 2012 Grenache Rattrapante comes all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and spent 33 months in 27% new French oak. My notes start - and end - with “Wow.” Giving up tons of black raspberries, peppery herbs, licorice, dried flowers and cured meats, it’s a massively concentrated, rich and layered Grenache that somehow manages to stay graceful, lively and fresh on the palate. There are roughly 800 cases of this elixir and any Grenache lover should do their best to latch onto a bottle (or two) ...Read More »

2015 Honorio Rubio "Aron" Garnacha Rioja New!
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....

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 »

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 »

2000 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape reveals 14.6% alcohol, and is stylistically similar to the great 1990. The 2000 is open-knit and fat, with higher levels of glycerin as well as a more corpulent style than the structured, backward 2001. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by sweet, black cherry/kirsch liqueur-like notes presented in a voluptuous, full-throttle, intense style. It is already revealing such secondary nuances as pepper, garrigue, and truffles. Chewy, full-bodied, and moderately tannic, this cuvee is accessible, but not ready to drink. (JD) ...Read More »

2010 Mas Martinet "Els Escurcons" Priorat

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Els Escurcons is pure Garnacha (since 2008) from a 600-meter altitude vineyard planted in 1999. 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. It is both ripe and fragile, with good freshness. Drink 2014-2020. (LG)" (2/2014) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(All Garnacha, aged in a combin ...Read More »

2014 Bernabeleva "Viña Bonita" Garnacha Vinos de Madrid

In the Sierra de Gredos mountains, just to the south of Madrid, some pretty amazing Garnacha is being made around the village of San Martin de Valdeiglesias. Catalan winemaker Marc Isart Pinos is taking old vines, (in this case from a vineyard of decomposed granite with only 18 inches of topsoil), applying excellent viticultural work, fermenting in foudre with some whole clusters used, as well as long maceration on the skins for further complexity, and bottling with a minimum of sulfur to create a beautiful, expressive wine. If your frame of reference fo... Read More »

2011 Sine Qua Non "Dark Blossom" California Grenache (Previously $300)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Grenache Dark Blossom is probably the best Grenache-based blend in the vintage. A blend of 75% Grenache, 12.5% Syrah, 11.5% Mourvedre and a splash of Roussanne (fermented with 11% whole clusters), it has a perfumed, complex style, with notions of black raspberry, cassis, dried flowers, white pepper and licorice giving way to a full-bodied, layered and seamless mouthfeel. There’s no shortage of fruit here, and while it’s hard to resist now, it has enough tannin to warrant short-term cellaring. It should knock it out of the park through 2029. (JD) ...Read More »
