2010 Garnacha SOLD OUT

2010 Garnacha SOLD OUT

Garnacha is the most cultivated grape in Spain and a major component of blends from Rioja and Priorat.  It became popular in California, under its French name Grenache, due to the increase in production of Rhone-style wines and its use in blending with Syrah.  Although most consumers think of it as a French grape, Garnach is native to Spain.

Bottled on its own, Garnacha makes a fruity, easy drinking wine with soft tannins.  This is especially true of the 2010 vintage.  Depending upon terroir and weather conditions, it can vary from deep ruby red to a light, clearer red similar to a Pinot Noir.

This wine has a bright, fruity flavor that makes it perfect for pairing with lighter meats such as pork and chicken and the more fatty fisn such as salmon and halibut.  My husband and I will often have it at dinner when he craves red meat and I'm in the mood for fish or chicken.
