High sugars give this grape character and ensure a full-bodied wine, but lower
levels of acid and tannin enhance its candidacy as a blender. Intensive pruning
on older vines gives Grenache enough structure to maintain its balance as a sole
varietal, which is popular - and successful - in California, Australia and sometimes
Spain, but many vintners rely on blending to keep this alcohol-happy grape in
check. Typical flavors of Grenache are jam, spice, dried fruit, earthiness and some
pepper, depending on where it's grown. Old vine Grenache makes an intense and distinct dry wine, and in regions
like Banyuls, a delicious, fortified dessert wine.
