Fully resolved and delicate. Very little tannic grip left here, but what’s left is effortless to drink. Pure cherry liqueur, cedar, burnt orange.

If there is a better value French red than Gigondas, I don’t know what it is.

Color is deep red. Nose is vanilla and pepper. Palate is short and sharp but dense with earth and pepper. There's complexity here.

Blend of Grenache and Syrah. Deep ruby color. Aromas of cherry, licorice, spices and raisins. Dark cherry on the pallet with touches of salt, minerals and chalk on the lingering finish. Soft and silky tannins. Fresh and Complex!
