2019 Reserve GSM The Geste

Paso Robles AVA

Our 2019 Reserve GSM is named Geste (French for Gesture) and is named after Beau Bianchi's eldest son. This blend puts Syrah in the spotlight with 50% of the volume, resulting in a dark colored, medium-bodied wine that is well balanced and complex. Grenache follows the Syrah at 36%, and Mourvèdre makes up the remaining 14% in the blend. Each wine is carefully made separately by our winemakers and are tasted and blended right before bottling.

The classic French Rhône-style blend lovingly abbreviated GSM is produced all over the world, and has become a top favorite of many wine drinkers for its complex red fruit flavors. While first produced in France, other areas are now well known for growing their own versions of GSM blends, including Spain, Southern Australia, and the Central Coast of California. GSM stands for Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdrethe three arguably most important varietals in the Côtes-du-Rhône region of France. Grenache, by far the lightest
of the three varietals, is most often used as a majority in the blend, providing soft spice and red fruit flavors. Meanwhile, Syrah and Mourvèdre boost tannin complexity and darker fruit flavors like blueberries and blackberries as well as smokey or savory notes.

Our 2019 Reserve GSM shines out of the glass with purple and magenta hues. Powerful aromas of spice, cranberries, blueberry jam, leather and cedar all rise up to greet our nose and tantalize us, urging the first sip. These scents follow through on the palate, offering up flavors of ripe and dried blueberries and cranberries, cinnamon, chocolate and chalk with a dry and soft finish. Enjoy this wine with roast chicken and herbed mushrooms, or an elaborate charcuterie plate with assorted meats, pickles and olives.
