GPS derives its name for the three noble varietals composing this wine.  Crafted with Biodynamic fruit dry-farmed from the Dark Horse Vineyard. Paul Dolan is a Biodynamic farming pioneer, and his home ranch showcases the expression of this craft exquisitely. The 70-acre farm is teeming with life: horses, sheep, chickens, beneficial insects, and hundreds of different plant varieties call this ranch their home. The vines are robust, and although it’s dry-farmed, the soil is bursting with organic matter, which keeps the vineyard healthy and fruitful. Farming here is as much art as it is science, and the result creates a truly special wine from a truly special place.

The 2017 has developed surprisingly quickly, and drinks very well for a relatively young wine. The nose is fruit and earth driven, with notes of blackberry, coffee grounds, forest floor, and strawberries. The palate is so soft and smooth - long chain tannins move this wine seamlessly from front to mid to back palate. Time is taken on the finish, encountering more sweet fruit notes, mocha, and pleasant acidity.
