Tasting Notes

One of our favorite wines to blend, this GSM exhibits a vibrant ruby hue with glimmers of garnet at the edges. The aromatics are enticing, offering a bouquet of both savory and ripe red fruits, including cherry, spiced red plum and strawberry. Subtle hints of black tea, dried herbs and black pepper add complexity and intrigue. On the palate, this wine showcases a harmonious fusion of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre, that is both fruit-driven and savory. Juicy red berry flavors dance alongside nuances of plum and hints of the forest after a rain. Silky tannins provide structure, while well-integrated acidity lends freshness and balance to the ensemble. The finish is lingering and satisfying, with echoes of red fruit lingering on the palate, accompanied by a touch of earthiness that leaves a memorable impression. Pairs well with anything off the grill, cassoulet, braised lamb shanks, or a mushroom and swiss smash burger. Enjoy!

Drink 2024-2039.
