This is definitely NOT a post about spelling errors. Nothing to see here, folks.
Meh, only 10-15 buck savings over average pricing on CT.
C’mon wine.woot - impress us!
I’m not buying because I’m just flat out of cash, but I’ve never heard of a GSM blend (probably because I’ve never heard of the Mourvedre grape). Anyone have experience to share?
Edit: As I read, I see this is a common blend in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.
i stand by this deal.
That’s a Super Burrito and 2 beers out here!
The 2007 vintage was ideal. Both Oregon and California nailed it. Ann Kraemer’s vineyard in Amador is superb. She is a legend in this part of the woods.

Hands down, wines are even more gorgeous than their label and tremendous QPR.
We love GSM’s - one of our favorite is Gibson’s Barrosa Valle Wilfreda blend. I believe GSM is considered a Bourdeaux Blend.
CdP. I edited one of my earlier links to mention it.
Winery Prices are $30 per for the GSM and $26 per for the Syrah.
That makes this nearly 50% off.
CT however shows averages prices of $18.25 for the Syrah (most listed as being from the winery) and $17 for the GSM (most listed as being from lot18). It’s still a good 10-15% off of CT prices.
the GSM blend is traditionally found in the wines of the Southern Rhone. Over the years, these varietals have taken a huge amount of real-estate from my Cabernet section among my personal stash of wines.
EDIT: oh we are all about to be schooled by the winemaker - looking forward to hearing from Mike!
(Reported and already fixed. We’re that fast…sometimes.)
Shipped from the winery this is going to run you at least $140 with tax and shipping.
Looks like a smoking deal to me. More like 60% off the full set shipped.
I am pretty tempted by this but the SIWBM must stand until I have drank through a little more of what I have on hand.
