Dylan Sheldon’s Sheldon Wines Grenache is a lovely and pretty wine that gives much pleasure and shows off the vineyard site, which is also used by Sine Qua Non, Margerum and other top wineries. Dylan decided the Grenache was so good on its own he bottled it solo, as he usually uses it in his flagship Vinolocity, Chateauneuf-du-Pape style red (with Syrah) that has got many 90 Point scores and has been a cult favorite at the Hospice du Rhone tasting event over the last few vintages.  Back to this wine, the 2006 Grenache shows classic Rhone flavors, grenadine, cherry liqueur, plum, strawberry and peppery spices, along with some earth and subtle lavender and wood notes. Drink now and enjoy this fun wine! ($25 Est.) 90-91 Points, grapelive
