Paso Robles Red Blend GSM , 2017

Produced by Caelesta Wines

This GSM tastes like the heart and soul of the Paso Robles area Rhone scene. Aromas of violets, graphite and anise are coupled with boysenberry, blueberry, and black tea with a dash of cream. This GSM boasts refreshing acidity with firm but supple tannins and a long, complex finish that is reminiscent of a crème brulee with a raspberry drizzle. Drink 2021 through 2030.
