In many cases, ros\u00e9 wines are made of a mix of grape varieties to yield a balanced outcome. However, there are a few grapes in particular that don\u2019t need a helping hand to shine their best. Grenache\u2014the workhorse grape of the Southern Rh\u00f4ne\u2014is one of these grapes\r\n\r\nGrenache ros\u00e9s are typically dry in style, with a broad, rich palate of watermelon, strawberry and lemon flavors. Many examples can be found in California, Oregon and Washington, where the grape is commonly grown for varietal and blended bottlings.\r\n\r\nClementine Carter 2019 Ros\u00e9 of Grenache (Santa Barbara County); $38, 93 points.
