Drew "Syrah" 2018 GSM Field Blend

Here the GSM is a bit of a misnomer as this is mostly Chave cuttings Syrah interplanted with 2-3% Grenache and Mourvedre. There is also some Viognier thrown in for good measure. The nose is fantastic with a heady mix of tobacco, violets, soft red berry, light pepper, and some minerality. The palate is moderate in weight with dark fruits and soft cherry balanced by earth and spice. Lovely stuff here! D&M Tastings Notes

Several years back we grafted an alleged Chave selection along with Grenache and Mourvedre within a 1 acre block on the Valenti Ranch. While this blend doesn’t play along with the rules of traditional GSM blends; this one is leaning more in the Syrah direction and the Grenache and Mourvedre play more a seasoning role. This field planting is picked all at once and vinified together along with a touch of Viognier for some aromatic lift. Some Syrah is added from the Perli Vineyard as well. The fermentation was 100% native yeast using 50 % whole clusters. The end result is a cool climate blend showing black and red fruits, crushed pepper, cured meat, orange peel , sage, pennyroyal and a touch of floral violet. A lean cool climate blend with just the right amount of lusciousness. A food wine. Winery Notes
