Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

(90% grenache and 10% syrah): Bright, full red. Strawberry liqueur, cherry, flint and a whiff of maple syrup on the nose; reminded me of Philip Togni's Ca' Togni dessert wine. Then supple and surprisingly dry, with harmonious acidity leavening the wine's mouthfilling texture. Finishes with a light dusting of tannins. Very grenache, but I wanted a bit more primary fruit and lift.

About This Producer


Ray and Nancy Coursen founded Elyse Winery in 1987 with their first production of Morisoli Vineyard Zinfandel. They continued to purchase grapes until 1997 when they bought a small winery on Hoffman Lane. After initially focusing on Zinfandel, the winery expanded into Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah and more recently Coursen has made small quantities of Chardonnay, a Cal-Ital blend called Nero Misto, a Chenin Blanc, Rose, and a Grenache called Le Corbeau. The winery has two labels, Elyse and Jacob Franklin, named after their children. The Jacob Franklin label was started in 1998, featuring a low-yield Petite Sirah, a Bordeaux blend called #60 Mon Chou and a Hoffman Lane Cabernet.

Wine Varietal: Grenache


One of the most widely planted varieties in the world, Grenache is most well known as the base variety in wines from the Southern Rhone, such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Cotes-du-Rhone, and Gigondas. Grenache thrives in hot, arid climates all over the world particularly in the Mediterranean and Australia. Its origin is believed to be the Roussillon region of southern France (formerly Spain - where it is grown today and is known as Garnacha). Grenache is used in blends to round out Rhone-style reds to soften harsher varieties such as Syrah and Carignan. It is also used for rose wines. Typical descriptors for Grenache include raspberries, strawberries. black currants, black cherries, black olives, coffee, gingerbread, honey, leather, black pepper, tar, and herbes de Provence.
