Our “GSM” is inspired by the incomparable blends of the southern Rhône river valley. In our 2016, the Grenache (44%) provides a seductive strawberry fruit that wraps around a brooding, dark-noted core of Syrah (23%). The Mourvèdre (33%) seasons the blend with a woodsy spice. This was our frst vintge of GSM to spend time aging in terracotta amphorae, and the clay enhances the tannin structure, and lends a subtle minerality to the wine. The result is a lovely synergy, a wine that is appealing right now, but that promises to amply reward a little bottle-age. Enjoy it with a lightly smoked pork tenderloin and cauliflower roasted with lemon and garlic.
