Similar in style the straight Grenache, the 2016 GSM offers lots of framboise, dried strawberry and peppery herbs in a charming, supple, mouthfilling style. It’s another total crowd pleaser that offers loads of charm.

The 2016 GSM (Santa Barbara County) is supple, open-knit and impeccably balanced, with lovely aromatic lift and freshness. There is good energy and vivacity to the dark cherry, plum, mint and lavender flavors. Silky tannins add to the wine's considerable allure.
A Côtes du Rhône-styled blend, the 2016 GSM from Frequency reveals notes of sweet spices and red and black berries, followed by a pure, medium to full-bodied palate with velvety tannins, a rich core of fruit and juicy acids. Enjoy its uncomplicated charms in the near term.
