GRENACHE - (aka Garnacha) one of the most widely planted grapes in the world is now one of the most exciting! Grenache is planted all over the world and presented in a large number of styles (AKA Rhone wines like Chateauneuf de Papes, Spanish Garnacha, and its the "G" in GSM from Australia) Grenache is finding more than a few fans here in Southern California - and is extensively planted in Santa Barbara (especially Ballard Canyon) and up in Paso Robles where the style is more concentrated and inky with with typical Grenache features of spice, berry fruits, white pepper, fleshy to soft palate with gripping tannins on the finish. Grenache is often discussed as being Pinot Noir like but with a powerful tannic grip.... and a great alternative for the summer bbqs.... come and experience Grenache at its best with a number of the best producers showing up for this round of battles.... no wine glass is safe when Grenache gets involved, and don't forget your toothpaste... your teeth may never be white again.
