Wine Creek Ranch, Dry Creek Valley
Quivira's GSM captures the harmony and balance of our Wine Creek Ranch terroir. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre are grown only a couple hundred yards apart from one another on Wine Creek Ranch. The climate here mimics that of the mediterranean-influenced Southern Rhône Valley, where the great Chateaunuef-du-Pape wines are produced. Just like Chateaneuf-du-Pape, this expressive red blend captures our land's distinct synergy. Quivira's blending expertise is on full display with this GSM; the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
The 2015 vintage yielded small berries of exceptional concentration. Red fruit aromas are incredibly fresh and bright, then multiple layers of dark, blue fruits, baking spices and herbal notes reveal themselves The promise of the complex aromatics is followed seamlessly on the palate, complemented by a rich structure balanced with youthful tannins. A versatile blend that combines lush fruit, round texture and pleasing freshness.
