Consilience’s current release of Rodney Shull Grenache aged 45 months in barrel and is ready to drink now. Though it is difficult to resist, be sure to wait about a half an hour after popping the cork to allow this well-aged beauty to open up. The nose and palate show kirsch, black plum, coffee and spice with hints of rose petals. As a result of its nearly 4 years in barrel the wine has flavors of vanilla, brûlée topping and caramel with hints of smoke. Versatile and delicious, Consilience’s Grenache is kind of the Swiss Army knife of wine. It can be served room temperature, or slightly chilled as a refreshing summer day wine yet is full-bodied enough to complement many types of foods. From the simple like burgers and burritos, to the sublime like pork tenderloin with Oaxacan molé sauce, Garam Masala crusted chicken with figs or venison with pan-roasted butternut squash and braised shallots – Grenache’s food-friendliness shines. Take a bottle with you today, and make dinner at home feel more like Date Night.
