2019 was a standout year in the Eagle Foothills and our 2019 GSM (64% Grenache / 31% Mourvèdre / 5% Syrah) is no exception to the rule. The rare vine cuttings came from the storied CdP estate, Château de Beaucastel, in France and are thriving in our sandy/loamy soil.
This very special wine marries boisterous and fruity Grenache with brooding and peppery Mourvèdre and Syrah.
The Syrah black fruit tones of plums, currants and blackberries are present and The Mourvèdre element is strong this year, bringing vibrancy and power. It's firmly savoury, very dry and dramatic. .The vineyard notes of earth, straw, mushrooms, and stone minerals are more recognizable with maturation in the cellar. The pepper, allspice, cloves, cedar, nutmeg and oak tannins all perfectly complement. This wine keeps on giving and giving! It still remains as one of the standout fan favorites at the tasting room, for seasoned veterans and wine newbies alike! Dress up your next dinner or evening with this elegant, seductive wine from the Eagle Foothills.
