I haven't tried anything but their Zin. Actually, I didn't even know they had a Grenache. I don't remember seeing anything but Zin in their mailer to me this week or in past mailers. If there is one, I'll have to try it, as Grenache has become Mrs. Piob's favorite varietal.
I guess this is part of the problem with wine reviews and probably why I stopped doing them and had to be coaxed into the few sentences I will now toss up. I used "light" to mean light tannins, light on depth and complexity, and just an easy drinker that you don't try and analyze or think about, just sip as you chat with the wife. Yes, abundant, jammy fruit. The ETOH tastes light though and the wine is not hot in the least.
