An incredibly rich and concentrated with intense aromas and layers of blackberry liqueur flavour. Demands hearty meat dishes and won't be satisfied until you are. Bring it on!

Yup - this has become a bit of an iconic wine for Grant Burge. It is well worth spending the money.
Jason Solanki rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Holy moly! This blend of 46% Grenache, 39% Shiraz and 15% Mourvèdre offers gorgeous aromas of red fruit, ripe cherries and subtle milk chocolate. Crushed red berries and blueberries with hints of chocolate and mocha on the palate. Medium-full bodied. Could be aged another 5-6 years. Awesome! Tasted May/2012.
Mark Britton rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is a gorgeous wine from a wonderful Australian producer. A classic Rhone blend the wine is a mix of Grenache, Shiraz, and Mourvedre (hence the name GSM). This is a big wine layered with complex and beautiful aromas which are echoed on the palate. Rich fruit, good acidity, tannins that don't dominate, and a long finish make this wine a must have. Well worth the $32 price point.

rich & delish
Kimberly reviewed this wine as follows:

Sweet Dark fruit Strawberry
The Holy Trinity here is Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. Amen! Full ruby. Powerful scents of red and dark berries, dried flowers and herbs, with smoke and spice accents. Juicy and focused, with lively raspberry and bitter cherry flavors taking a darker turn with aeration. Shows very good clarity on the finish, which repeats the raspberry and spice notes.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
