2020 Notre Vue GSM

2020 Notre Vue GSM
Chalk Hill

The luscious ruby color of this GSM blend is met on the nose with fruit-forward aromatics of dark cherry, plum and jammy blueberry, mirroring the hue of the wine. Velvety notes of rose petal and sandalwood envelop these berries with hints of pink peppercorn as the finished parcel of this nose. The palate is equally as enticing with notes of sweet tobacco leaf and dark chocolate taking the forefront, followed by acidity embodied by bright red berry notes and whispers of sage on a dry finish.  

Food pairing suggestion: braised short ribs with horseradish whipped potatoes.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A classic trio, this GSM displays wild strawberries and cherries on the nose, along with angel-food cake, crushed herbs, and black pepper. The palate follows with waves of rich red plums, Rainier cherries, cardamom, and dried herbs.
Vineyard Notes
Chalk Hill is blessed with an abundance of volcanic soils that drain quickly and produce small, more intensely flavored and colored berries without aggressive canopies. Reaching above 1,000 feet in elevation, the vineyards of the AVA tend to have excellent sun exposure. Afternoon temperatures are moderated by the cooling Pacific breezes out of the Russian River Valley. The blocks for these grapes range from rich clay top soil to 30ยบ slopes with vines struggling to maintain their hold.
Winemaker Notes
This is a classic Rhone style blend made from Grenache, Syrah & Mourvedre that were picked on the same day and co-fermented in stainless steel at 55 degrees. The grapes incurred hours of cold-soak prior to pressing and non-saccharomyces yeast was used for sulfite reduction therapy. This wine has minimal intervention in the winemaking process and the low sulfite and alcohol content enhance the purity of the flavors and aromas.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this wine with robust dishes such as a cassoulet, roast duck, or rustic country sausage.
