While once being the 2nd most planted grape in the world, Grenache's popularity has faltered. However, its ability to produce delicious wines has not.
Grenache is known for its candied red fruit flavors complemented by dollops of cinnamon and black pepper. The most famous of these comes from Spain's Priorat.
