GSM 2014

When Mourvedre is grown in the foothills of the Sierras, its bold luscious fruit presents deep, rich, spicy boysenberry with hints of cherry and cinnamon. The Grenache grape tends to be soft and silky, somewhat akin to a top flight Pinot Noir but with more density and palate presence. The Syrah grape, deep purple in color, showcases lavender, violet, cocoa and nutmeg characteristics.

Description

The 2014 vintage was phenomenal for the Sierra Foothills and the surrounding grape growing regions in California. The color of the fruit was outstanding, the extractions were fantastic, and the fruit had great character and structure. Additionally, the lack of late-season rain and a long growing season helped ensure optimum fruit maturity. The Grenache for this wine is sourced from the Gianelli Vineyard. The Syrah is from the Splinter Vineyard and the Mourvedre from the Dacus Vineyard. All are located in the Sierra Foothills AVA. Each vineyard is perfectly situated to produce the best of each varietal. The Vineyards are all located within 1500 to 3000 feet above Sea Level. The daytime temperatures tend to be between 75 to 85 degrees and evenings are cool, allowing for balanced ripening and flavor development.
