Trajectory GSM is the flagship wine of Leverage. Three components make up this well balanced red blend: Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvédre. The Adelaida District AVA produces some of the finest Grenache in the new world. While Syrah and Mourvédre from the Willow Creek AVA complement the beautiful red fruit and aromatics of the Grenache. Our second iteration of Trajectory greets you on the nose with black cherry, floral hints of violets, lavender and mocha. As you taste, black and blue fruits of blueberry and bosyenberry begin and carry through to the mid palate. A spicy and savory finish rounds it out with hints of oak notes and dark fruit. A versitile wine with good freshness, structure, with balance and finesse.

(20% whole clusters; 40% new French oak) Bright violet. Potent, expansive aromas of fresh red and blue fruits, vanilla, spicecake and woodsmoke carry an intense Indian spice flourish. Sweet, seamless and broad on entry, then tighter in the midpalate, offering sappy black raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that are given focus by an undercurrent of juicy acidity. Puts on weight with air while retaining energy, and finishes spicy and very long, displaying impressive focus and gentle tannic grip.

A GSM blend of close to equal parts of Grenache and Syrah with Mourvèdre that's from four vineyards in the Adelaide region of Paso Robles, the 2015 Trajectory is a juicy, fresher effort that offers notes of blueberries, peppery herbs and earth. With medium to full-bodied richness, a fruit forward personality and a clean finish, drink it anytime over the coming 4-7 years.

Dark blackberry-syrup aromas meet with a slate-driven minerality and light purple flowers on the nose of this blend of 43% Grenache, 39% Syrah and 18% Mourvèdre. The palate is framed by solid acidity and shows more blackberry flavors as well as thyme and chaparral spice.

Tightly wound and pensive right now, with modest raspberry and smoky licorice accents showing through taut tannins. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best after 2018. 170 cases made.
