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 »

2014 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

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.

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 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.

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 »

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.

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.

2014 K Vintners "The Boy" Walla Walla Valley Grenache

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There's 300 cases of the potentially profound 2014 The Boy, which is mostly Grenache from the Powerline Vineyard in Walla Walla. Fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in neutral oak, it offers sensational ripeness and depth in its meaty, olive, pepper, currant and kirsch scented bouquet. This gives way to a massive, concentrated and voluptuously textured Grenache that has a great mid-palate, ripe tannin and a finish that just won't quite.

This is their first vintage of the Thorny Devil, from an old-vine, dry-grown vineyard in Barossa, which they ferment as mostly whole berries without added yeast, then age in old oak barrels. It's a wine with serious structure, the tarry tannins carrying fresh cherry and cranberry flavors without any sense of excess alcohol. There's old-vine complexity in the finish, which lasts, clean and savory." (2/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choi ...Read More »

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)

Supple, elegant and seamless, with no hard edges, sweet, sweet tannin and medium to full-bodied richness, this fabulous Grenache would be a dead ringer for a top Chateauneuf du Pape in a blind tasting. It’s the best vintage of this cuvee to date and will have 10-15 years of overall longevity. (JD)" (6/2016) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "About three-quarters grenache, ...Read More »

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 »

Juicy and intense on the palate, showing a hint of residual sugar--as well as a suggestion of refermentation--to the expansive flavors of red cherry, flowers and spices. This energetic, youthful, uncomplicated wine will match perfectly with burgers and simple tomato-based pasta dishes." (1/2016)

2010 Cave de Rasteau "Signature" Rasteau Vin Doux Naturel (500ml)

If you're looking for a dessert wine to pair with something chocolate, there's nothing like a glass of Vin Doux Naturel. This traditional wine from the Southern Rhône is made entirely from fortified Grenache Noir. Cave de Rasteau's version is made from 50- to 90-year-old vines with a maximum yield of 30hl/hc--less than a bottle of wine per vine, according to the winery. Rich and powerful, with mellow sweetness, it makes the end of a meal a decadent treat.

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.

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.

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.

Checking in at 15.7% alcohol, it's no lightweight, yet it has considerable elegance in its sweet blackcurrants, white pepper, licorice, baking spices and hints of violet-like aromas and flavors. Possessing the hallma ...Read More »

2008 Sine Qua Non "The Duel" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (Previously $500)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sine Qua Non’s 2008 Grenache Estate The Duel boasts extraordinary richness, power and sheer depth. Tobacco, leather, mint and spices are woven together in this large-scaled Grenache. There is plenty of intensity here, but the 2008 has just a touch less aromatic definition than the very finest wines at Sine Qua Non. I imagine some of that may be the result of extended aging in oak. The 2008 is 82% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 2% Viognier and 1% Roussanne, all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in Santa Rita Hills. A portion of the Grenache was fermented using w ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Pierre Usseglio "Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Up with the crème de la crème of the vintage, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is 100% Grenache, was mostly destemmed, and aged 70% in concrete tank and 30% in one- and two-year-old demi-muids. Full-bodied, rich, nicely concentrated and layered, it’s loaded with Provençal notes of ground herbs, crushed flowers, licorice and black raspberry. It’s a charming, forward example of this cuvee that should have 10-15 years of overall longevity. Both the 2013s and 2014 from the Usseglio brothers are solid, and they have more texture and charm than ...Read More »

2009 T-Vine Cellars "Frediani Vineyard" Napa Valley Grenache Back In Stock!
2009 T-Vine Cellars "Frediani Vineyard" Napa Valley Grenache

T-Vine was founded in 1992 by winemaker Greg Brown, with the intent to produce small lot wines of old vine origins such as Grenache, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. When all the elements come together, just right, magic happens. The Grenache grown in Jim Frediani's Vineyard is truly unique in all the world. The old vines, digging deep into the layers upon layers of soil, the Calistoga heat and the nurturing from Jim himself, result in fruit with a one-of-a-kind personality. Over the past 17 years Greg has learned to capture the maximum expression of this ama... Read More »

2011 Sine Qua Non "Dark Blossom" Grenache
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2011 Sine Qua Non "Dark Blossom" Grenache (97RP, 97VN, (93-95ST)). 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)" (08/2014)
