GSM! GSM! GSM!

I'm interested. Plus, I'm planning on visiting Paso after the Woot tour, so I'm doubly interested.

Hello! Victor and Jenni from VOTM here to answer any questions you may have. 'Round Midnight is our Syrah based GSM and it is named after the classic Thelonious Monk song.

This is a probably a pretty good deal - IF you trust summer shipping.

I'm hoping it'll be offered again in ... say ... OCTOBER?

We are getting down to the bottom of the pallet on this vintage. I am not sure it is going to be around in October. Just sayin'

Is your plan to not buy anything all summer and complain about it. Just wondering so I can stop reading every time I see your name.

This is another one we had at the Denver Wine.Woot gathering.

It had an aggressive berry nose, and the initial taste was quite acidic.

After about 10 minutes in the glass it opened up a bit and moved into a more rounded berry taste. I got a fair bit of a lingering tannin aftertaste from it - not an unpleasant one, just a definite tannin aftertaste.

Liked it -- if I weren't already overbought from buying the Super Sonoman, I would probably buy this. Seemed like a good patio sipper.

I typically prefer GSM's with a larger Grenache component. Is this full bodied like a full blown syrah? Also, how present was the alcohol? At nearly 15% it could dominate.

This is a medium+ bodied wine that works great with food. I love to have a glass while cooking--you might, too?? Syrah does dominate, but the Grenache and Mourvedre at 20% each round out the blend--as does decanting and/or aerating. The alcohol is integrated and well-balanced by the dark fruit. This is my favorite blend.

Yes, I was asking about GSM, having recently attended and loved the Rhone Rangers tasting here in town. I think I liked those with more emphasis on the Grenache and even the Mourvedre than the Syrah but I may just have to try this despite my SIWBM. We really need more GSM's (and Grenache's and Mourvedre's) here!

I second this opinion. This was a wonderful wine that drinks beautifully right now. Can definitely taste the berries and tannins. A little heat at first that mellowed out in about 30 minutes or so for me. Could taste the spicy and was a little peppery.

Hubby who doesn't like wine (beer drinker) said we needed to buy this wine. So I will definitely be buying this tomorrow when I speak with him to make sure.

Glad I was able to try it since this was my first GSM ever. Now I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for GSM's.

Wow! I just had some of this at a restaurant yesterday. It's a decent Rhône blend. Very dark in the glass (though the color doesn't cling as one might expect) and has that candy-coated rubber-leather nose that you'd expect from California. It's sits fat, dark, and extracted on the palate; not quite as "thick" as an Aussie, but closer to that style than to the Southern Rhône in France.

It's "food-friendly" with a decent structure (medium tannins and medium+ acidity) that made it a good accompaniment to our entrèes (braised pork shoulder with sweet corn basil grits), though it started to fade a bit toward the end of the meal. I wouldn't see it as a long-term keeper for that reason. Finish your four-pack within the year.

My friend and I are actually Old World heads, so I probably will skip this one as it's solidly New World in style. But it's a decent if not stellar New World that should have mass appeal. Get it down to cellar temperature (20 minutes in the refrigerator) and serve it with your burgers and franks off the grill. It'd be most at home there.

This is a really good wine made by a great couple - Victor and Jenni. They are both committed to making killer wines that 'stand out' from others in Paso, and I really dig this wine. I've had it on a number of occasions, and each time I found it quite balanced with great acidity and wonderful structure. This is the type of wine that I would open and just enjoy over a 3 or 4 hour period, noting the changes that come about with more air.

Cheers!

...Well said; I dig the Rhone blends from Vines on the Marycrest... they have another GSM blend, "Heart of Glass" that you should try.

Yes. Heart of Glass (named for the Blondie song) is our "other" Rhone blend based in Grenache. You might see it here someday, who knows?

Watching the ground squirrels steal plums off our tree here in Paso Robles. Boo. Wish I had a glass of 'Round Midnight in front of me. It is a little early for wine here in CA...

I thought he said he was leaving or something because he couldn't get the right answers and the customer service sucked.

Sorry. Internal strife. I love GSMs from Paso but I am absolutely full of Rhone at the moment. I like your blend though. We're heading to Paso Oct. 27. Maybe we'll stop by your place.

Edit: have you guys contributed wine to Coy's wine club (the Wine Wrangler)?

Re: Summer shipping. It was over 109° here when I received my latest Wine.Woot delivery last week. The bottles were cool(-ish) to the touch. No worries here.

Personally, I love screw caps. I currently only have vertical storage capabilities, so caps work perfectly.

GSM with such a nose? These sound like they'll really hit the spot!

Same here, but I think I may go ahead anyway since I really REALLY want more GSM blends here on Woot PLEASE! And preferably with a higher Grenache (or even Mourvedre) component than the Syrah.

Yes. Coy featured our 2006 Heart of Glass a couple of years ago. Come see us in October. Our new tasting room should be done by then!!

In the case of '07 Round Midnight, said "bacon fat" is really more a theoretical mouth feel thing than a true flavor profile thing, in my humble opinion.
