2020 River Trace GSM
"The right River Trace guided its seekers to wonderful treasures. May this River Trace bring you to that same magical place." Tom Meadowcroft
TASTING NOTES: This Rhone-style blend leads with bold notes of ripe plum, blueberries, and leather. The palate is delectably smooth, with suggestions of sweet cherry cola, dried cherries, tea leaves, and warm clove. This medium-bodied wine finishes elegantly, with lingering characters of hazelnut and roasted coffee beans that complement the precise tannin structure.
FOOD PAIRING: GSM blends call for full-flavored pairings, like dishes with fresh herbs like sage, rosemary, or crushed red pepper. Robust, fatty pairings like grilled ribeye or sausages are also a delicious choice.
