Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 50% Grenache, 40% Shiraz, 10% Mourvédre

Intense plum and prune aromas with hints of cassis and five-spice. A big, tightly structured style, offering dense, black fruit flavors complimented by anise and mocha accents. The palate is long and persistence with a hint of savory oak and delicious, fruit sweetness on the finish.

"The 2005 GSM reveals a deep ruby/purple hue along with scents of pepper, charcoal, roasted herbs, meat, blackberries, and cherries. This full, rich Aussie red is ideal for drinking over the next 3-4 years."
-The Wine Advocate
