An elegant, smooth Rhone punctuated with just the right amount of spice and acidity. A great value if you can find it for $10-$12.
Decent cherry and plum flavors. Not a lot of spice. A bit sharp for a rhone but that may be more of a positive than a negative. Good value but there are better sub $15 rhone blends out there.
Blackberry flavor jumps out but is overwhelmed by a spice I can't quite put my finger on. The Medium-long finish would be more enjoyable if the spice took a back seat to the bold, supple fruit flavors that I expect in an Argentinian Malbec. I gave it 3 stars because its a good wine for the price, but its no 89.
screw cap wine
Rhone blends are my favorite and I'm usually very critical but this Aussie GSM rivals a number of it's French counterparts at a much lower price. With a lot of these blends the lack of acidity makes the wine fall flat but this one has all the needed complexity; it's not oftern you find a wine that is light and fruity yet still full bodied, especially at $10
Good color and nose; spice and berry flavors complement well. Might be a bit overpowering and bitter to some but shouldn't be an issue with more time. Not a 93, but a great value at $20
