2019 Skinner El Dorado County Grenache
New!
Top Pick!
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Vivid, sunbaked fruit flavors and a great structure of moderate acidity and tannins balance this wine out beautifully on a high level. Blackberry and raspberry notes mingle with hints of cedar, clove and black pepper for a tasty complexity. (JG)" (12/2021)

92 points Vinous: "The 2021 Grenache is a lighter and more ethereal expression and shows pretty clove and cranberry aromas with a backbone of earthy tones. Fresh acidity provides a vibrant start before building in texture and weight through to a lingering finish. Stalky tannins add a gentle bite. It feels not quite together and needs a couple of years to settle. (AH) " (02/2023) 91 points James Suckling: "Aromas of rosemary and thyme mix with baked cherries and blackberries. Medium-bodied with silky tannins. Mineral undertones give definition and arti...

91 points James Suckling: "Ripe and tangy nose with red cherries and strawberries with a hint of stewed herbs, stones and white pepper. Crunchy and juicy on the palate with firm tannins and a juicy finish. Garnacha. No sulfites added. Drink now." (06/2023) 91 points Wine Advocate: "The perfumed and heady 2020 Los Ángeles was produced with Garnacha from a 50-year-old plot that is worked biodynamically (but nothing is certified). It fermented with 30% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in new and used barrels of different sizes and origins f...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Tasted out of bottle, the 2018 Grenache Profuga is firmer and more focused than the 2019 and has deep, layered, full-bodied style as well as ample pepper, iron, and herbes de Provence like nuances all grounded by a massive core of cassis, kirsch, and assorted berry fruits. The 2018s from this estate are brilliant across the board and shine for their purity, focus, and precision. " (08/2021) 98 points Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Grenache Profuga is composed of 77.5% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 8.3% Syrah, 3.3% Petite Sirah and 0.9% Vio...

2017 Edetària "Edetària - Seleccio Vinyes Velles" Terra Alta

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2020 Grenache Distenta II is a blend of mostly 78% Grenache and the rest Mourvèdre, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and a tiny splash of Viognier. It's a ripe, sexy, insanely good barrel sample that has remarkable purity, tons of black raspberry and cassis fruits, perfect balance, full-bodied richness, and an already complex bouquet of violets, spice, and flowers. I continue to be blown away by what this estate seems to achieve with Grenache in just about every vintage." (08/2022) 97 points Wine Advocate: "I first tasted the Grenac...

94 points James Suckling: "This is a delicious grenache, sourced from prodigious sites. Sandy Blewitt Springs and ferrous Clarendon, smattered with extremely old vines. This full-weighted expression delivers the low pH-infused grittiness of the vintage. The aromas are sumptuous, encompassing kirsch, peony, lilac, juniper and anise. The time on skins has been extended in recent years, as have the picking windows, necessitating separate ferments. Just a little candied rose water, detracting. The attention to detail, however, is manifest in the growing stat...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "My favorite from this estate was the 2020 Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Pure Grenache, a red and black-fruited, peppery, spicy, sandalwood-driven Grenache that has medium to full body, a charming, layered, graceful mouthfeel, and gorgeous tannins. This incredibly Provençal, satisfying, lengthy Grenache is well worth seeking out and should drink nicely through 2030."

Price: $24.99

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Villages Valréas Pure is just about all Grenache, and it's up with the finest Valréas out there. Smoking good black raspberry, kirsch, and blackberry fruits give way to more Provençal garrigue, flowers, and spice with time in the glass, and it's beautifully balanced, with silky, polished tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. It brings ample power, but it's more about finesse and elegance. It’s a gorgeous 2019 to drink over the coming decade." (11/2021)

92 points Wine Advocate: "The regular red 2022 Garnacha was produced with grapes from the whole region—Corella, Cintruénigo, Fitero and now also Lerga—from their earliest harvest ever under very warm weather, and it fermented with 20% full clusters and was bottled early and unoaked. It has contained ripeness, 13.41% alcohol, berry fruit, hints of licorice and a touch of honey and beeswax. It is primary and has a medium body and a juicy mouthfeel with good grip and tension, more serious than the nose points at, with some chalkiness and without any heavine...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Top 100 Cellar Cellections of 2023 - This young bottling will have a long cellar life, thanks perhaps to the old-vine attributes. Aromas of amaro-like myrtle and eucalyptus leaf meet with stewed strawberry and raspberry on the nose. The palate is loaded with acid, chalky in tannins, and spicy in cracked white pepper, with a core of pomegranate and black raspberry fruit. Drink the wine now through 2032. *Cellar Selection* (MK)" K&L Notes: From 100-year old vines just outside the town of Gilroy. 4% of the blend is comprised of ...

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Blueberries, violets, crushed rocks, peppery spice, and floral notes all emerge from the 2018 Montsant Mas Donis Old Vines, which tastes like a baby Priorat. Rich and medium to full-bodied, it offers an elegant, seamless texture, light tannins, and a great finish." (03/2021) K&L Notes: From the D.O. of Montsant in Cataluña. The appellation and its 2,000 hectares of vineyard were designated in 2001 to highlight the superior quality of the region. Montsant actually wraps around the celebrated Priorat. While the soils generally con...

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2022 Châteauneuf Du Pape A La Gloire De Mon Grand-Père is mostly Grenache (there are tiny amounts of Cinsault and Clairette) that were all from the La Gardiole lieu-dit and was partially destemmed and brought up mostly in demi-muids. It has incredible purity in its vibrant aromas and flavors of black raspberries, fresh-cut flowers, licorice, graphite, and chalky minerality. These all carry to a full-bodied Grenache offering ultra-fine tannins, a layered, multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a gorgeous finish. I'd put this beaut...

Fresh, bright and pure. Drink now or hold." (01/2022) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "A once-a-day punchdown limited extraction in this wine and produced a beautifully light grenache, the herbal cherry flavors filling out its open, welcoming frame. It shows some earthy detail through the middle, but remains sweetly soft and invitingly easy." (02/2023)

96 points Int'l Wine Review: "Medium cherry cored with a watery rim in the glass, the 2020 Estate Weathereye Grenache is aged in 100% neutral oak but includes approximately 40% stems during fermentation. Crushed red raspberry, mountain blueberry, candied cherry, Red Mountain herbs, Blood orange zest, and fresh linen emerge on the nose. An elegant wine that glides across the tongue and finishes with a stunning red cherry note all over the palate. Another exquisite Grenache by the Weathereye team. Highly recommended." 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Châteauneu...

90 points Wine Advocate: "The 2022 Camino de Navaherreros is pale, light and primary. It was produced with Garnacha and 10% Tempranillo that they picked very early in a very warm summer to keep the alcohol to a moderate 13.5%. It's nicely textured, and even if it's not terribly complex, it's approachable, clean and gives a lot of pleasure. (LG)" (05/2023)

Rita Hills and spent 33 months in 27% new French oak.

94-96 points Wine Advocate: "The blend of the 2021 Gratallops was higher in Cariñena than in the 2020 (25%), which resulted in a wine with a lower pH (3.37), the tendency that makes the 2021s more vibrant. They used some 40% full clusters for the fermentation (rather than adding the stems like in the past). The wine has acid berry freshness; and right now it's a bit difficult with the tannins and the acidity, but one more year of élevage should make it more polished. It should be long-lived and fresh.

The 2020 Laurel feels very elegant, balanced and fresh, a little lighter perhaps, with perfectly ripe tannins, a little in line with 2016 or 2013. It might be a little unusual for the house style or perhaps a slight change, as they are gradually going for softer vinifications; you don't really need to extract in Priorat, because the wines are powerful enough on their own.

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Clos Erasmus Priorat (94ST). Int'l Wine Cellar: "(60% garnacha and 40% syrah) Glass-staining ruby. A wild, highly aromatic bouquet displays raspberry, blackberry, violet and spicecake, with a strong mineral element that gains strength with air. Juicy, penetrating red and dark fruit flavors are given depth by a note of bitter chocolate and include strong mineral spine. The spice and floral notes resonate on a very long, sappy, pure finish. This wine benefits enormously from aeration, but there's no way I'd open a bottle for at least another six years." (11/2010)
