This is a wonderful GSM blend from Paso Robles. Nicely balanced, rich and fruit forward. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Still young and needs a few years in the bottle, but already delicious. Would age nicely in the next 5 years.
Good right out of the bottle, and better with airtime. Complexity comes in in the decanter.
Spicy and interesting to drink by itself, and good with food too. Delicious and approachable.
I paired it with a Charcuterie board meats, cheeses and crackers. Goes very nicely with the aged Brie cheese.
