2017 Texas GSM Melange

GSM stands for Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. However, since 2016 we have been experimenting with the additions of other Rhone varietals to add Texas character on this classic French trio. We have increasingly been falling in love with what Carignon and Cinsault can do in Texas. Both varietals have a tendency to be big  berried with juicy strawberry and red fruit notes. A fairly different blend from the 2016, we hope you’ll enjoy this year’s take.

Wine Profile

Always designed with food in mind, the 2017 GSM is medium to medium plus in body with bright acidity and balanced tannin. This complex blend has both fruity notes of strawberry, red cherries, kirsch, and blueberries but also floral, leather, cocoa, and smoky notes.
