Randy Caparoso, Editor-at-Large/Bottom Line Columnist at The SOMM Journal and The Wandering Sommelier Columnist at The Tasting Panel (among many other titles), focuses on Californian Grenache wines in his latest blog Is California Grenache on a Cusp?
“Bottom line – the more you appreciate delicacy in red wine, the more you appreciate Grenache!”
Trying to find 100% Grenache wines can be a difficult task. As Randy mentions, Grenache is most often the feminine and elegant counterpart in Syrah and Mourvedre blends. We challenge you to start drinking more Grenache – in its purest form – to appreciate and better understand its fineness and elegance. Start with the wine Randy reviewed, our 2013 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Block Eight Grenache, and see how well your palate can appreciate this noble varietal.
