  1. Sine Qua Non Grenache Dirt Vernacular 2016
    JD100
    WA96
    $299.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points! One of the finest Grenaches to ever pass my lips is the 2016 Grenache Dirt Vernacular and it’s 78% Grenache, 11.5% Mourvèdre, 7% Touriga Nacional, and the rest Petite Sirah. Reminding me of an old vine Grenache cuvée from the Maurel brothers in Châteauneuf du Pape, it boasts a huge nose of black raspberries, kirsch liqueur, graphite, ground herbs, and pepper. This is one of those wines that offers incredible intensity and depth, yet still just glides over the palate with no sense of heaviness whatsoever. Full-bodied, rich, layered, and pure, it’s a riveting example of Grenache that could come from nowhere else. Drink it any time over the coming 15+ years. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  2. Domaine du Gour de Chaule Gigondas 2016
    VM93-95
    $29.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed, expressive bouquet evokes ripe red berries, exotic spices and potpourri, and a smoky mineral nuance adds lift and urgency. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry liqueur, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors that spread out steadily with air. Blends power and finesse with a sure hand and finishes extremely long and smooth, with fine-grained tannins making a late appearance. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More
  3. Familia Nin-Ortiz Priorat Nit de Nin La Coma d’en Romeu 2016
    JD94
    $79.98
    Availability:In Stock
    The 2016 Nit De Nin La Coma D'En Romeu is another perfumed red from this estate, yet it takes the exotic level up a notch. Wild strawberries, pomegranate, blood orange, and crush violet notes all define the bouquet, and it’s medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and layered on the palate. While it’s a beautiful wine, it has a certain wildness that makes me think it’s best enjoyed over the coming 7-8 years. This cuvée is all Garnacha from a higher elevation vineyard and spent 17 months in once-used 600-liter barrels. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  4. Saint Roch Maury Sec Kerbuccio 2016
    DEC96
    JD93
    WA92
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Lovely kirsch nose with bags of ripe and authentic Maury fruit. The palate is round, fleshy and warm with a delicious richness of oak, vanilla flavour and intense and complex finish. Lovely wine that's beautifully balanced with great typicity. Full-bodied and very polished. - Decanter Magazine Learn More
  5. K Vintners Grenache The Boy 2016
    WS93
    JD97
    $36.98
    Availability:In Stock
    In the running for the best Grenache from Washington, the 2016 Grenache The Boy Powerline Vineyard is a single vineyard release from a site in the Walla Walla Valley and was brought up in neutral oak. It has a Rayas-like perfume of rose petals, black raspberries, cherries, spice, and smoked meat. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, thrilling textured, seamless Grenache that has a stacked mid-palate, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. Hats off to the team at K Vintners for this incredible Grenache! - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  6. La Bastide Saint Dominique Chateauneuf Du Pape Secrets De Pignan 2016

    97 Points!  All Grenache from the sandy soils of Pignan (nord) and matured in stainless steel, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Secrets de Pignan boasts enormous levels of purple raspberries, plums and apricots. Full-bodied, plush and creamy textured, it delivers waves of supple, rich, concentrated fruit, plus enough spicy-herbal complexity to keep things interesting. An unadulterated expression of ripe Grenache, it's even more compelling than the stellar 2015 version. - Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

    JD98
    WA95
    $94.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points!  Pure Grenache brought up in a mix of foudre, old barrels, and stainless steel, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cornelia Constanza is up there with the finest versions of this cuvée to date. Huge notes of cassis, kirsch liqueur, crushed flowers, and incense give way to a rich, powerful, yet graceful wine that has no hard edges and a great finish.

  9. Solitude Chateauneuf Du Pape Cuvee Barberini 2016
    WS93
    JD96
    WA94
    $74.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points!  Darker colored and more modern in style, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Barberini is a parcel selection of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 20% Mourvèdre, aged in 40% new oak. Despite the new oak, it stays firmly planted in the southern Rhône and is a rich, opulent, gorgeously layered wine. With some background oak in its blackberries, cassis, toasted spice, and graphite aromas and flavors as well as a touch of chocolate, it's full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated on the palate, with terrific balance and length. It’s approachable today but will be better in 2-3 years and keep for two decades. - Jeb Dunnuck
