The third wine in the new McLaren Vale releases, G.A.M is named after the initials of the proprietors children. Opaque black purple colour with paint like cling to the glass. Aroma of violets, cedar, vanilla and blackberry. The palate has more weight combined with its oily texture makes for a blockbuster palate. Concentrated flavours of liquorice, blackberries and super ripe plum. Obscenely voluptuous. Fine grained perfectly balance tannins, followed by a very long aftertaste of spice, liquorice, blackberry and plum.
Cellar 3-4 years.
Alc/Vol: 14%

Other reviews....
Herb and spice edges to the aroma; full-bodied, powerful and dense blackberry and bitter chocolate palate fruit; controlled but ample tannins. Tasted 2004. Drink by 2018.
