Serafino Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2019

Special Price $25.00 Regular Price $28.00
Young and super tight, this GSM has a long future ahead of it. Drop it in a decanter or vroom it through a vinturi if you are going to drink it now. The good stuff as follows… blue fruits, black tea, cherries, plums, spice, musk, focused acidity and silky tannins. In the bad stuff column… nuttin!
