Tasting Notes

We return to a true GSM with the 2016 vintage of the Proprietor's Reserve, bottled unfined and unfiltered.

In 2016, our Grenache block turned out some amazing fruit with bright pops of red fruit, persistent but silky tannins, and a clean finish. The Syrah adds depth, mid-palate and flavors and aromas of luscious dark fruit. Finally, the Mourvedre provides earthy flavors, strawberry rhubarb aromatics, taking a very nice wine and making it an amazing and complex wine!

This medium-bodied wine pairs beautifully with a creamy peppercorn steak and mushrooms, meatloaf and creamy mash potatoes, Boeuf Bourguignon and your favorite mac and cheese!
