Kaesler Stonehorse G.S.M 2008
The finished wine spent 12 months in predominantly older oakd and has been bottled without fining or filtration. The Grenache contributes soft aromatics and flavors, Shiraz some palate spine and a bit of spice and the Mourvedre lends breadth and depth.
(a 62/28/10 blend, raised mostly in stainless steel; no new oak): Deep, bright ruby. Bright, intense aromas of blueberry, fresh plum, espresso and black pepper. Fat and sweet, with nicely concentrated black and blue fruit, floral and bitter chocolate flavors and a spicy kick on the back. Sweet, juicy and very long. This big boy has 16% alcohol.
