BIG BASIN GSM "GABILAN MOUNTAINS", MONTEREY 2012

Wine Advocate

90 Points

One of the riper, more full-bodied wines in the portfolio, the 2012 GSM Gabilan Mountains checks in as 56% Grenache, 39% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre that spent 20 months in oak. It offers a ton of black fruits, plums, peppery spice and road tar to go with a concentrated, rich, textured, if not decadent style on the palate. There’s plenty of obvious oak here, so give it a year or two in the cellar.

Vinous

91 Points

Tasted next to the 2013 and 2014, the 2012 GSM Gabilan Mountain shows the limits of the vintage. There is good up-front depth and juiciness, but the 2012 comes across is a bit overripe and lacking both the complexity and nuance of the two successive vintages. I would prefer to drink this tasty Grenache/Syrah/Mourvèdre blend sooner rather than later. 2016 - 2020.  Antonio Galloni Jul 2016
