Warm, rich, sweet and spicy in style - the grenache really shines through here. Bold, expressive red berry fruit jumps from the glass, with cocoa and smoky spice.

What do the critics think?
“Ruby-red. Intensely floral aromas of fresh red berries, candied cherry and Asian spices. Silky in texture, with midweight raspberry and cherry flavors, tangy mineral bite and late-arriving tannins. Very appealing now, but balanced to reward patience. This is really elegant. ”
91+ points, Stepehen Tanzer IWC (previous vintage)
“Rich and velvety, with layers of spice and cracked pepper winding through the dark berry and currant flavors, lingering on the open-textured finish. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. Best from 2011 through 2016. 500 cases made.”
92 points, The Wine Spectator (previous vintage)
“The 2006 John Speke GSM is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Shiraz, and 20% Mourvedre sourced from vines over 60 years of age. Dark ruby-colored, it has an enticing nose of spice box, scorched earth, forest floor, cherry, and blueberry. Velvety-textured and elegantly-styled, this savory blend conceals enough silky tannin to evolve for 2-3 years and will be at its best from 2011 to 2020.”
91 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (previous vintage)
