Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Jeb Dunnuck - A more eclectic blend of 41% Syrah, 37% Grenache, 18% Mourvedre and 4% Tannat (22 months in 55% new French oak), the 2012 GSM Casual Encounters offers lots of sweet red and black fruits, dried flowers, and savory, peppery, spicy notes in its full-bodied, supple and sexy style. It's ripe and exuberant, but I love its balance. My note finished with "would like to drink a glass." Pulling from a number of sites spread throughout the Central Coast, Herman Story’s Russell From makes unabashedly Californian wines that make the most of the beautiful fruit that makes California so special. These are not for those craving tiny, mid-weight efforts and they have rocking textures, tons of fruit and most importantly, always remain a joy to drink. These are gorgeous wines.

Wine Spectator
Bold and full of personality, with distinctive aromas of blackberry, tobacco and tar and concentrated yet well-structured notes of plum, olive and licorice. The flavors linger alongside ripe tannins. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Tannat. Drink now through 2023.
 

Additional Information

Region :
California
Since the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 California wines have unquestionably ranked among the best in the world. From the Anderson Valley in the North through Temecula Valley in the South, California vineyards grow dozens of wine grape varietals that produce wines of many different styles. The California wine industry has steadily gained ground since the 1960s (the industry took a major hit following Prohibition), but its roots date back over 200 years. Major grape varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. View all our items from California
