Description

We blend our GSM wine based on the characteristics of each varietal in the give year. Our 2014 GSM red blend has more Grenache and a little less Syrah than years past to balance the power of a warm season. We brought in a little Petite Sirah in for texture and tannin. This wine is our version of an Old World southern Rhone wine made with beautiful New World fruit. It is very versatile to pair with food; our favorites are duck and lamb. This wine will drink well on release and to age gracefully past 2024.
