The 2016 GSM Artist Series offer more blackberry, blueberry, cracked pepper and earth, with medium to full-bodied richness on the palate. I love its purity, and while it’s concentrated, it stays light and graceful.

The 2016 GSM Verna's Artist Series is a big step up from the 2015, as it has both more depth and more freshness than its predecessor. Dark, pliant and deeply expressive, with remarkable purity to its fruit, the 2016 is super-impressive. The perfumed, lifted finish only adds to the wine's appeal.
A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre from Vernas Vineyard in Los Alamos, the excellent 2016 Artist Series offers up lovely aromas of crushed berries, smoke, rose petal and plums. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, polished and rich, with a vibrant core of fruit, supple structuring tannins and a bright finish.
