Simple, juicy, tutti-frutti, fresh-from-the-vat fermentation aromas give this immediate, if simple appeal. The palate...

Fans of the GSM blend will find this example fairly straightforward. Aromas of dried red fruit and spice hint at the black cherry infused medium body. Easy to drink on its own though the clean mouth-watering acidity will also pair well with a multitude of food styles; dry finish with a touch of black pepper.

Tasted Jan 2012. A nice soft cherry forward wine with some spice to it. Enjoyed it even more the second day as it took on a bit of earthy subtleness to it. Excellent GSM blend for the price.

Nice medium-bodied GSM. More acidity than a GSM from the New World (or really SGM as they come from Australia and others), but a lot more complexity too. Tasted April 2012.

Coming from the eastern bank of the Rhône, and just north of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, it is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre.
It is a simple wine with red berries and spice aromas. Soft tannins with light red berries, a bit acidic. It may be showing its age here, having lack-luster berry tones, mostly a herbaceous flavours.
Tasted March 2014.
