"Deep, with blueberry and dark, orange-infused chocolate aromas paired with blackberry, loam and pepper flavors. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Best from 2019 through 2024.— T.F" (WS)

"The 2014 GSM The Magic Sun checks in as a blend of 35% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre, and 30% Syrah brought up in 72% new French oak. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by terrific notes of plums, violets, spring flowers and new leather. It's fresher and more focused than the Syrah and Grenache, has nicely integrated acidity, beautiful purity of fruit, and a great finish." (JD)

"Austin Hope's latest releases are all about power and ripeness, and this blend of 35% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre and 30% Syrah achieves balance and elegance amidst that strength. Cuban coffee, fig jam, dried blueberry and chocolate aromas lead into a pillowy-soft palate that's layered with espresso, cocoa, roasted fig and plum jam flavors. Steady acidity and finely chiseled tannins frame it all." (WE)
