THE FAMILY TREE - G.S.M. - 2012

214.00

Welcome to the Family Tree.

This wine is the unification of our Vineyards, our Style, and our Work.
It's a one time blast from the hip. We make it, we make it one time only. 
We drop the Mic.

In this unique vintage we have unified:
2 Barrels of our Grenache from each of our Vineyards, Windmill and El Camino Real
A Barrel from each of our Syrah Bloc's : Fatman / Little Boy / High Hill
Finally 3 Barrels of Mourvédre from our El Camino Real Vineyard
Or 4 Grenache, 3 Mourvédre, and 1 Barrel of Each of our Syrahs

The point of a GSM is to fully represent a place in time. Here we combine six different blocks of vines from two different vineyards representing three different varietals. Think of it as a family, sure they share many of the same traits and DNA, but the diversity of the individuals is immense. This unique mix of personalities and individualism is what makes your family different than any other family that ever has been or will be.  
Take yourself for example, you were a different person this year than you were last year and will probably be much different next year than you are now. Now compound that difference and multiply it across your entire family. Everyone in that family is evolving and changing,  sometimes it's in direct correlation to the changes of the other people involved. 
Therein lies the Hidden beauty of the GSM. Even if we wanted to, we could never re-create this wine precisely.
Next year each individual grape will be different, each vineyard will be different, and we will be different.
It is the differences that make you beautifully unique.

Our goal is never to be better than anyone, our goal is always to be better than we what's were.
Our goal is to express our work, our location, & this time. As perfectly as we can.

I believe we have achieved that.
