A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre (hence "GSM") from Snake River Winery. The grapes are Estate-grown in the Snake River Valley AVA.
Medium garnet color with some blue hints at the rim.
Tobacco, cedar, boysenberry jam, slight tomato, wood smoke. Lingering fruity/cherry syrup finish. A slight burnt rubber scent in the nose.
Initially somewhat puckering and tannic, but opened nicely after a bit.
Definitely merits some old world style points.
A nice wine, and pairs well with rich meats.
