WineDiva's Review

Seamless, lovely, juicy.
Without doubt, Michael Bartier is one of British Columbia's most talented and humble winemakers. He makes honest wines and trusts the site and the fruit to dictate the wine. My favourite of his reds, the GSM Grenache (43%), Syrah (38%), Mourvedre (20%) is harvested from the estate vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, and was aged 16 months in 225L French oak barrels.
Raspberries and cherry twizzler notes are woven with Turkish coffee, black chocolate, violets and sweet pipe tobacco aromas. It has a silky, fresh and genuine palate and it really highlights the Grenache fruit and the Syrah's white pepper flavours. Lovely balance and cohesiveness, it then culminates in a lengthy finish of brown spice, purple berries and tea.
