2013 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra Terra Alta Top Pick!
2013 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra Terra Alta

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(raised entirely in concrete): Brilliant ruby. Pure, high-pitched aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, blood orange and fresh rose, plus a bright mineral overtone. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering sappy red fruit and floral pastille flavors lifted by spice and mineral nuances. Closes spicy, nervy and long, with silky tannins making a late appearance. Finding a wine with this much clarity and precision is a tough job at double and even triple the price of this one."

2012 Shatter Grenache Côtes Catalanes

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A collaboration between Napa's Joel Gott and Dave Phinney, the semi-opaque 2012 Cotes Catalanes Grenache is a smoking blend of 100% Grenache that comes from the singular, black schist soils located around the village of Maury, in the Agly Valley in the Roussillon. Aged in French oak (a small part being new) and hitting 15.6% natural alcohol, this sexy, full-bodied, pedal-to-the-metal effort bears plenty of resemblance to the old-vine, 100% Grenache efforts coming from Chateauneuf du Pape. Kirsch liqueur, blackberry, toasted spice, garrigue and hints of v ...Read More »

2013 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

In the region of Cariñena, the Garnacha grape variety seems to find a lovely expression, one which is less high octane and lighter on its feet than in some of the neighboring regions. And, as ever, this is a terrific red wine bargain for anyone looking for an inexpensive house red or wine for any party, wedding, or other event.

2012 Borsao "Tres Picos" Garnacha Campo de Borja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The terrific 2012 Tres Picos is one of the finest inexpensive, Grenache-based wines made in the world. This full-bodied beauty boasts a deep ruby color as well as loads of strawberry and black cherry fruit, hints of lavender and crushed rocks, sweet tannin, and a broad, savory mouthfeel. It, too, should be consumed over the next 3-4 years. This has long been a popular source for value-priced wines.

(7/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Bright, ruby red in colour with vibrant purple hues.

2012 Bodegas Alto Moncayo "Veraton" Garnacha Campo de Borja Top Pick!
2012 Bodegas Alto Moncayo "Veraton" Garnacha Campo de Borja

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Their inexpensive offering is the 2012 Veraton, a 100% Grenache aged in 60% new French and 40% American oak for 17 months before being bottled without filtration. It is a powerful, full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal red boasting a dense purple color, and a sweet blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, lavender, licorice and earth notes intermixed with a touch of new oak. Stylistically, this is a modern, massively intense, rich wine that over-delivers in many ways. However, it is not for consumers looking for shy, restrained and delicate wines.

2013 Bernabeleva "Camino de Navaherreros" Garnacha Vinos de Madrid

Brisk and racy, offering fresh red fruit and rose pastille flavors and a hint of blood orange. I might have guessed this to be pinot. Finishes taut and clean, with a lingering redcurrant note and lacy tannins sneaking in slowly."

2012 S.C. Pannell "Tinto" Old Vine Grenache-Touriga National McLaren Vale South Australia

It is a joyously schizophrenic blend, half saying drink without any introspection or hesitation, the other inviting deconstruction of the very different spice influences, and also the differing appeal of the raspberry and cherry fruit flavours."

2012 S.C. Pannell Grenache McLaren Vale

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked grapes were open-fermented and hand-plunged before spending 14 months in used French puncheons; Pannell recommends decanting several hours before drinking. Medium crimson colour introduces a wine that is eager to display its fragrant red fruits on the bouquet and on entry to the palate before persistent, fine-grained tannins make their presence felt. They are fundamental to both the present and future character of the wine, which will change with age, but in absolute terms be neither of higher or lesser quality than it is now."

2011 Bodegas Breca "Breca" Garnacha Calatayud Top Pick!
2011 Bodegas Breca "Breca" Garnacha Calatayud

90 points Wine Spectator: "This dense red shows a savory character, with tar, ink and licorice notes framing the core of plum and meat flavors. Features firm, well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Distinctive. Drink now through 2018." (10/2014) K&L Notes: The Calatayud D.O. sits in the arid Aragon region of Northeast Spain. Here Garnacha reigns supreme, producing wines that are richly fruited, but with pH's that are relatively low, which highlights the wines' bright fruit and freshness.

Full-bodied, rich and satiny textured in the mouth, it offers plenty of red fruit and baking spice layers in the long finish. Drink it now to 2019+.

From the winery: "Our much anticipated pink wine made from 100+ year old Grenache Gris vines. This year we made 50% like a white wine (whole cluster press to neutral French Oak barrels) and 50% was de-stemmed and left to soak on the skins for 24 hours in an open top wood vat before pressing and then on to neutral barrels. Spontaneous fermentation occurred in barrel followed by naturally occurring malolactic fermentation. We bottled unfined and unfiltered on February 23, 2015.

One of the latest offerings from Priorat's Sao del Coster, this Garnacha based wine shows chewy red fruit flavors that betray admirable freshness, with a hint of macerated orange peel I frequently find in Spain's Mediterranean climate examples of Garnacha. This is not at all shy, but a great example of the intensity of flavor and beautiful fruit expression in the new era in Priorat. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish & Portuguese wine buyer)

Aged in 620-gallon foudres and concrete tanks, it nicely conceals its 15.1% alcohol with plenty of kirsch liqueur and raspberry fruit, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity and a sexy texture. This is a top-flight effort from one of the earliest Grenache practitioners in Northern California. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. (RP)" (12/2014)

It represents an awesome naked/virginal expression of Grenache from three vineyard parcels planted in sand, clay, and limestone soils. After tasting this wine on five separate occasions, I can state with certainty, it has the most saturated color of any Mon Aieul produced to date. Moreover, its perfume of blueberry liqueur, black raspberries, licorice, roasted meat juices, and lavender is incredible. Full-bodied power, a multilayered mouthfeel, tremendous purity, and awesome concentration put this wine in a class by itself. This sensational Chateauneuf du Pape is still very young, and 3-4 years of cellaring is required. It should be a modern day legend and last for nearly two decades. (RP)" (10/2009)

2012 M. Chapoutier "Barbe Rac" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers stunningly pure fruit, with silky layers of raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry coulis that cascade over each other, backed by subtle dried anise and warm ganache notes. Very concentrated but not hefty, this sails through the finish, with a perfectly embedded graphite spine and a long echo of lavender. Best from 2018 through 2032. From" (1/2015)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac is brilliant, and checks in near the top of the vintage. Made from 100% Grenache, it gives up loads of kirsch, sweet black cherries, crushed flowers and spice ...Read More »

2011 T-Vine Cellars Napa Valley Grenache

From the winery: "The soils are so rich that the wines from this heavenly place ooze with deep cocoa, baked brownie lushness, combined with classic cigar box and pepper aromas. On the palate: Ripe layers of raspberry, dark chocolate wild plums, apricots, and blackberries mingle with creamy oak and sassafras. This wine is seamless, with great fruit purity, soft tannins and a complexity that draws you in for another taste."

2012 Ojai Vineyard "John Sebastiano Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Grenache

92 points Antonio Galloni: "Bright purple. Deeply pitched aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and candied flowers, with a smoky topnote and a hint of peppery spices. Lush, gently sweet black and blue fruit flavors are round and seamless, with gentle acidity adding back-end lift and cut. Leans more toward Spain than the Rhone in its emphasis on deep, lush, dark fruit. Closes sappy and very long, with building spiciness and just a touch of velvety tannins. Making so many different wines from different varieties and vineyards "keeps the mind active," according to Adam Tolmach, and it al ...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. Anticipate ...Read More »

2003 Torbreck "Les Amis" Grenache Barossa Valley

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Les Amis is a 300-case cuvee of 100% Grenache from a vineyard planted in 1901. I have had a lot of fun serving the 2002 blind to guests, and for my taste, this cuvee is the reference point for old vine Grenache produced in Australia. It is extraordinarily elegant for a wine of such power, richness, and intensity. Amazingly delineated, with a dense ruby/purple color as well as a gorgeously sweet nose of smoke, spice box, black cherry liqueur, creme de cassis, licorice, and lavender, it offers impressive balance, purity, opulence, and persistence. ...Read More »

2010 Sine Qua Non "Stockholm Syndrome" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The current release of the estate vineyard (a.k.a. the extended barrel-aged cuvee), the 2010 Grenache Stockholm Syndrome is an incredible effort that I couldn’t find a fault with. A blend of 75% Grenache, 22% Syrah, 2% Roussanne and 1% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confession Vineyard, it spent just under 30 months in 22% new and 78% used French oak prior to bottling. Locked and loaded, it knocks it out of the park with its cassis, licorice, smoked duck, spice-box and exotic herb-styled bouquet. The palate follows suit and while it has the expected depth ...Read More »

2011 Bernabeleva "Viña Bonita" Garnacha Vinos de Madrid

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright red. Exotically perfumed scents of candied red berries, white flowers and incense, with a vivid mineral overtone. Tangy, focused and pure, offering intense raspberry and cherry flavors that pick up a rose pastille nuance with air. This concentrated yet lithe wine finishes with excellent clarity and youthful tannic grip." (9/2013) K&L Notes: 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,... Read More »
