In a beautiful place tonight! Pure deep, dark meaty blackberry fruit, powerful yet elegant with tons of high-toned mineral notes. A perfect partner with a Father’s Day ribeye!

Wow. HUGE wine from Gigondas. Needs tons of air. Dark, deep, and rich. Seek this wine out on Sunday. I want to find it first. 😂

Utterly captivating. An benchmark wine from what will be a classic vintage. Clean and sleek, with and inky blue flavor that almost reminds me of Petite Sirah. Subtle gaminess and a freshness that seems to persist long after the wine seemingly finishes.

Like a women in a red dress getting ready for the ball. Elegant spice herbal nose, animal undertones. Very supple. Silky body. Super fine tannin. Gorgeous subtle red black fruit. Feminine Gigondas. A killer wine.

A beast of a wine. Blackberry, graphite, fig, black tea, smoldering campfire, and some floral tones in the background.

Feel like I need to make another pilgrimage to St. Cosme and thank Louis' ent-like, gnarly, 100-year vines for my Christmas Eve wine. Incredibly powerful and elegant at the same time. Wish I had more.
