Shokrian 2016 GSM
The Wine Crush Notes:
The 2016 Estate GSM bursts with dark fruit and smoke. After a couple swirls in the glass, notes of peppermint, cracked pepper, graphite, and curry spice start to emerge. Medium bodied with clean, focused fruit make this wine incredibly enjoyable all on its own.
Blend: 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre
