I am wrapping up the week with another pick from Paul Mas. Their 2011 GSM is a blend of 35% Grenache, 35% Syrah, and 30% Mourvedre. It hails from Herault Valley in the Languedoc region of southern France and is definitely a nice pick for a BBQ!
Rich aromas of dark fruit and spice make up the majority of the nose of this GSM. The fruity palate is medium-bodied with sweet tastes of strawberry, plum, boysenberry and a hint of earth and spice. There is noticable acidity but the finish is a bit short. For the price, this bottle is definitely worth pouring. (14% alcohol, $10)
My Wine Rating – B
Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with grilled beef, pork chops or a pizza topped with mushrooms and peppers.
