“Zac Wasserman is without question one of the most talented young winemakers in Santa Barbara. His wines seem to get better and better with every vintage.”
That’s what Antonio Galloni had to say recently when tasting through the Frequency’s current lineup. Nothing Zac made scored less than 90-points. That’s because from the top down, his entire lineup is rock-solid. If you’re looking for the best bang for the buck amongst $90 single-vineyard bottlings, though, it’s gotta be his under $30 GSM. The first wine he ever made, it’s still his calling-card in So. Cal.
Galloni said, “over the last few years the wine have gained in freshness which is a huge positive given that richness comes pretty naturally in [Zac’s] sites.” Then he dropped a 93-point review on the 2020 bottling, calling it “plump and juicy.” That’s exactly what you’re looking for in Santa Barbara big reds.
But this one also comes with a 92-94 point review courtesy of Jeb Dunnuck who labels this one “a terrific GSM in the making” and “easily an outstanding wine, if not more than that” – further proof, if you needed it, that this is the bottle you need in your cellar from the rising star.

92-94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
The 2020 GSM should easily be an outstanding wine, if not more than that. Lots of wild strawberry and blueberry fruits, notes of herbes de Provence and pepper, medium to full body, and a seamless texture all made for a terrific GSM blend in the making.
91-93 Points, Antonio Galloni- Vinous
The 2020 GSM is a plump, juicy wine that will drink well right out of the gate. Pliant fruit and silky tannins give the GSM so much immediacy. Bright red/purplish fruit, spice and rose petals all open effortlessly in the glass.
