Winemaker’s Notes

Palate-coating,
red and black raspberry with aromatic tinctures of tarragon and thyme, crushed pink peppercorn, caramelized blood orange, fresh scrubby desert herbs clawing the hillside;
silky finish,
weather basalt outcropping over valley vistas.

"Deep ruby/purple, the 2019 GSM WeatherEye Vineyard is loaded with notions of black and blueberry fruits, notes of peppery herbs, blood orange, and candied violets, medium to full body, ripe, velvety tannins, and a great finish. It's a seriously good-looking barrel sample. This cuvée is 38% Grenache, 36% Syrah, and 26% Mourvèdre, aged in concrete eggs and 500-liter French oak."
