Grenache is one of the most widely planted grapes in the world, and while most think of Grenache in the USA coming from California’s Santa Barbara County, Paso Robles or the Sonoma Coast, it also grows very well in Washington State.
One of the best producers in Washington is Sparkman Cellars from Woodinville. Their stunning Wonderland Grenache year after year has turned out nothing buy sheer in the glass enjoyment.
The Sparkman Wonderland Grenache is loaded with berry fruit, with the red raspberry and wild strawberry flavors being most alluring. With the wine now at age 5 it’s a perfect wine for burgers, pizza or BBQ. More importantly it’s ready to drink now, while the current release of 2017 needs a few years of rest to really come together.
That’s why the 2014 Sparkman Wonderland Grenache is today’s WineSiders’s Wine of The Day.
