I got the granache in a past woot! offering, and i really loved it. i'm sorry to say that i did not take notes, but i do remember that it was smooth and well balanced with nice cherry berry flavors.
i recall that we opened the bottle while cooking dinner and had to restrain ourselves from drinking too much so we had some to pair with the food.
very drinkable and very delicious.
not much of a syrah fan, but i bet it's worth it to have a nice bottle on hand to bring somewhere.

and there are cute martians on the cork

Seems like a good deal. Last time the Grenache was 3 for $45 and the Syrah was 3 for $40 = 6 for $85 vs. today's offer price of $70 (and since those were individual deals there would have been $10 worth of shipping instead of $5).

EDIT: Talked myself into it.

As I have absolutely no experience with Grenache, I'm kind of excited to try this offering. Can anyone offer up some notes on these before I hit the big yellow button ?

We recently (Friday night) had the 2008 Martian Ranch Syrah, and it was generally well-liked by our group of wine.wooters. I realize it's not the same as the 20089 that's currently offered here, but the wine was of great quality that we all really enjoyed.

Ive never had a martian wine though will likely be in, though i shouldnt. However, i am very familiar with santa ynez wineries and i am yet to find a grenache from that ava i did not like. Many wineries make great rhone varietals (especially Curtis) and for 12/bottle i doubt you can go wrong. Santa ynez also churns out awseome syrahs so this seems like a win-win.

Bought the Grenache the last time it was offered. The 2009 has a very savory edge to the red berry flavors. If you like GOOD Pinot Noir, Grenache isn't a stretch. I had a premonition that the winery would be offering up again, but was hoping for another vintage. And I just bought a ton of wine last night. Doh! Very tough to pass up. The current vintages are $24 a bottle, BTW

Agree. Grenache is a poor man's "quality" pinot

Yeah, I guess Christmas shopping got me back into buying mode.
