Bright ruby. Deep blackberry and mulberry aromas are complicated by sexy Asian spices and cola. Deeply concentrated dark berry flavors verge on liqueur-like but are given verve by tangy minerality, which builds with air. Velvety in texture, with no obvious tannins and good back-end tang. Offers an attractive blend of richness and vivacity.
The 2006 Stonehorse GSM is composed of 45% Grenache, 44% Shiraz, and 11% Mourvedre and was aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it has an attractive nose of cedar, spice box, earth notes, and black cherry. This leads to a forward, easygoing wine with savory red and blue fruit flavors, plenty of spice, and a silky finish. Drink this outstanding value over the next eight years.
