2009 GSM Tres Hermanos by Hart

This is a “local wine” that I picked up at a specialist wine shop off Market Street in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. The sales guy said that this was one of his favourites. Based on this recommendation, it came back to the hotel with me.

Technical Review

Appearance
Clear, deep garnet. (NB: lighting in the hotel was not ideal but I believe this wine was garnet in colour).

Nose
Clean, medium aromas of ripe plums with a herbacious note.

Palate
Dry, high acidity, medium body. Flavour characteristics of blackberry, raspberry and, again, that unidentified herbacious note.

Medium to Long finish.

Conclusion
Good. Can drink now but has potential for ageing. High price (USD$20+ per bottle).
