Floral and dark fruity greetings are the preamble to this easy to sip GSM blend. I paired it with a juicy burger with roasted red peepers, asparagus, brie cheese and Dijon mustard... LOVELY!

A smooth, complex wine for the price. In agreement with the smokey, savoury, floral expression described above. Rich, creamy, with plum, bacon fat, pepper and sweet herbs.

A recommend choice for those who enjoy the French GSM blends.

Tasted April 2013.

Not overly deep or complex, but extremely smooth, reasonably flavourful and very accessible for such a high % of Grenache. Enjoyable & good deal

It's only wine but I like it

Dark, rich blackberry fruit, with prominent notes of herbs, meat, and pepper. Good structure, though it seemed to me to be quite approachable now. A red loaded with regional character. Tasted April 2013.

A deep ruby in the glass with a fairly closed nose of plum and coffee. Nice plum fruit with firm tannins and a coffee note in the mouth. Still youthful. Needs some time.
