Earthy minerality aromas with black fruit and ripe strawberries accompany a complex interplay of subtle baking spices, leather and tobacco. Subtle notes of rosemary and olive tapenade add further intrigue. Plush flavors of violets and fresh plums are complemented by a rich and graceful mouthfeel and an exceptional lingering and pleasing finish.

An array of sanguine, sappy and stemmy notes around an array of brambly red and blue berries and gently smoky nuances. The palate has approachable, tangy red-fruit flavors, while punchy tannins kick crunchy into the finish. Blend of 40% grenache, 38% mourvedre and 22% syrah. - James Suckling 94pts

The 2015 Tenet GSM checks in as a blend of 43% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 22% Mourvèdre that was brought up in a mix of barrel and concrete. It offers a ripe, forward, incredibly sexy style as well as notes of blueberries, black raspberries, spice and licorice. Textured, rich and layered, it's already hard to resist yet will keep for 7-8 years.

Showing similar to last year, the 2015 Tenet GSM is a terrific blend of 40% Grenache, 38% Mourvèdre, and 22% Syrah that saw one-third stems and 13 months in larger oak. Black raspberries, blackberries, tobacco, and licorice notes all emerge from this full-bodied, supple, gorgeously layered GSM blend that has sweet tannin and a great mid-palate.

This wine—a joint project between Chateau Ste. Michelle and Rhône stars Michel Gassier and Philippe Cambie—is a blend of 40% Grenache, 38% Mourvèdre and 22% Syrah. The aromas are locked up on first pour, with notes of blackberry, underbrush, orange peel and spice. The palate packs a big punch of red and black fruit flavors that are bold but still show a lot of finesse and brightness.

Bright, dark red-ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of black raspberry, pepper, woodsmoke and violet. Concentrated, smooth and suave, displaying lovely spicy lift and depth to its broad, seamless dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. (This bottle was much fresher than an earlier sample, which showed some port-like qualities and rougher tannins.) Offers a lovely balance of sweetness and acidity, not to mention excellent breadth, and builds impressively on the tactile, lingering, lightly saline finish. Nothing dry about this. This very rich blend has the stuffng for mid-term aging. (15.5% alcohol)

Dense but well-structured, with vivid smoky plum and black olive aromas and focused blackberry, pepper and bitter chocolate flavors that finish with refined tannins. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Drink now through 2022. 1,500 cases made.
