Wine Review: This opaque and onyx colored GSM opens with a pleasant blueberry bouquet with a hint of boysenberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, fruit forward and its ripe fruit explodes in your mouth. The flavor profile is an extracted boysenberry with notes of black raspberry, black plum, and gentle oak in the background. The finish is dry and it moderate tannins are slightly prolonged. This wine would be ideal with a sharp cheese platter by the fireplace on a cold winter's night. Enjoy – Ken
