Grenache

Known as Grenache, or Garnacha (in Spain), this hot-climate grape vine can produce high-intensity, high-alcohol, flavorful medium-bodied red wines. Thinner skinned and low in tannin, Grenache is staple grape for not only producing red wine, but also Rosé. Ever hear of a “GSM” blend? Grenache, while lovely on its own, is a great partner to blend with Syrah, it’s bigger and bolder friend, as well as Mourvèdre. Mostly grown throughout Spain and in Southern France, particularly the Southern Rhône, Grenache is becoming increasingly popular in other hotter-climate regions. A go-to glass of wine for the end of a long work day!

Notes: “The most famous property in the Provence appellation of Bandol is Domaine Tempier. Normally simply labeled as “Bandol Rouge,” this year’s bottling specially recognized estate owner and family matriarch, Lulu Peyraud. A true icon of the wine industry, Lulu – now 102 – celebrated her 100th year in 2017. They could not have picked a better way to honor this remarkable woman, as this wine is simply luminous! A delicious and rugged blend of 75% Mourvedre, 14% Grenache, 9% Cinsault and 2% Carignan, this oh-so-savory wine offers deep earth and dark fruit layers along with pepper, olive and smoke notes. Give it a brief decanting and then enjoy with a hearty dish or stew. And, make sure to google Lulu Peyraud as you enjoy the bottle. This is something very, very special. It is drinking great now and will continue to do so for at least another decade.” – Vin Chicago

Pair With: As Autumn starts to settle in, grab this bottle & cozy up next to the fireplace with a bowl of hearty beef stew.

Red Blends Wines

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
