Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Stephen Tanzer Jul/Aug 2007
70% grenache, 25% shiraz and 5% mourvedre) Ruby-red. Smoky cherry and dark berry aromas are expansive and pure, with fresh violet, cured meat and sassafras adding complexity. The red fruit flavors display good energy and thrust thanks to bright minerality, and are braced by youthfully firm tannins. The silky finish offers a good jolt of tangy redcurrant.
94 pts The Wine Advocate Issue #173 Oct 2007
The 2005 The Ironstone Pressings GSM is superb in this top-notch vintage. It exhibits a fragrant bouquet of mineral, earth, truffle, black cherry, plum, and blueberry. Full-bodied as well full-throttled, it offers an extra dimension of complex spicy blue and black fruit flavors, well-concealed tannin, and a seamless, pure finish. Rich enough to be enjoyed now, it will provide pleasure over the next 20 years.
