Description

"A grenache, syrah, mourvedre (GSM) blend among the best made in America. These three traditional Rhone Valley grapes are synergistic when blended, and this wine has it's own cult following for both the excellent quality of the juice, but also because of the story. As told by David, a famous Irishman was in a race to homestead some land. Many folks were rowing towards land, and the first to arrive would gain title. The Irishman in question knew he would not reach shore first, so he cut off his hand and threw it onto the beach, thus being first to touch the ground. The severed hand that graces the label is sure to be a conversation-starter. Don't be fooled by the price - the wine in the bottle is guaranteed to be excellent." -Winery
