2017 Texas GSM Melange
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.
