- La Combe Perdue Grenache Mediterranee 2015 Product #31756 (In Stock)
Like your reds really rich, really mouth-filling, and really loaded with ripe raspberry and roasted strawberry Grenache fruit plus a big dose of Rhonish garrigue and spice? If so, this simply staggering value is for you. From vineyards all across the Rhone, it's 100% tank-raised Grenache that explodes with super dark, ripe, almost jammy red fruit ("confit of raspberry" sounds so much better than "jammy") plus bold notes of thyme, rosemary and pepper before finishing with a big gush of fruit. Nothing subtle here, but loads of fun.
- Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2014 Product #30771 (In Stock)
From 50-100 year-old vines, this is always one of Australia's very best Grenache values.
"High-pitched aromas of fresh red berries, candied rose, blood orange and white pepper; smells a lot like an elegant Pinot Noir to me. Clean, racy and vibrant on the palate, with the redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors conveying a weightless quality. Spicy, brisk and gently tannic on the clinging finish. This distinctly graceful wine is extremely easy to drink now but it should age nicely on its balance. These vines were reportedly planted between 1898 and 1973." Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points
"Pale garnet colored with a hint of purple, the 2014 Grenache Old Bush Vine offers enticing red cherry and raspberry preserves notes accented with suggestions of cinnamon stick, orange peel, red roses and white pepper. Medium-bodied and beautifully delicate in the mouth, it sure doesn't scrimp on the flavor, filling the palate with warm red berries and baking spice cushioned with soft tannins and finishing with great length."Wine Advocate 90+ points
