“The next big thing…Grenache”?…according to Wine Spectator

winespectatorlogo_730.jpgThe lead story in this month’s Wine Spectator is all about the emerging stardom of Granache and Syrah in the USA. Hot on the heels of the Grenache Symposium , see my blog entry earlier this month, Rhone varietals seem to riding the zeitgeist. In their editorial Wine Spectator’s James Laube comments: ” It wasnt so long ago that some Californian vintners were predicting that Sangiovese would be the next great thing. Yet Sangiovese never really took hold, making it more a wine of unfulfilled promise than a substantive player. Syrah stepped in next, making a stronger case with high quality wines. Now the next big thing could be Grenache, part of the Rhone grape family……Grenache isnt considered a classic variety by many, yet it is proving to be one of the most exciting and enticing wines to emerge in California in the past decade, capable of stardom, even if only on a small stage. One hopes that when vintners describe it as the Pinot Noir of Rhone varieties , some of Pinot’s magic rubs off”. Cheers to that James! For more see www.winespectator.com
