2012 GSM

The 2012 GSM is the most recent release of Pedernales’ classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. It is the fifth year Pedernales has released this traditional blend, which highlights the best of these three varietals. The grapes are sourced from the estate vineyard in the Texas Hill Country, Kuhlken Vineyards, as well as partner vineyards. The 2012 GSM is a medium body blend that brings together the diverse character of these three varietals into a fantastic balance that delivers aromas of blueberry and chocolate with subtle spicy pepper notes. The taste is rich and fruitful with a rich smooth finish. The wine is available in Whole Foods, fine restaurants and wine merchants, as well as the Pedernales Cellars tasting room in Stonewall, Texas.2012
