2017 Quady North GSM

Rogue Valley,
Southern Oregon,
Oregon

13.7% alcohol

Cork closure

Empty bottle weight: 22.7 ounces / 645 grams

540 case produced

Whole-cluster pressed 

Bouquet:

Fruity aromas of blackberries, black plums, black raspberries, blueberries, and a hint of cigar box rose from my glass as I swirled this wine.

Palate:

I found this GSM (42% Grenache, 41% Syrah, 17% Mourvèdre) red blend to be nicely structured, with an equal balance between fruit and savory. I tasted tons of black fruit flavors, including; blackberries, black plums, black raspberries, brambleberries, blueberries, and a touch of blueberry syrup. Savory notes of cedar, dried herbs, baking spices, and cinnamon were just as prominent, along with abundant acidity. Medium-bodied in weight, with a slightly prickly tannic texture and a cocoa powder finish, I highly recommend drinking it slightly chilled on a warm day.

Food pairing suggestions:

Barbecued pork chops, crispy potato and beluga lentil skillet, Tomahawk rib-eye steak.

SRP $25
