Rich with sweet strawberry extraction on leather and farm side undergrowth. Mushrooms. Deeply fragrant, great value. The 15 a notch better.

80% grenache and 20% Syrah, a robust example of the rustic charm of Gigondas great now and even better in a year or two

Kirsch, black cherry, herbs, mint, chocolate, medium acid toast and a bit of funk. Pretty damn good if not a little ripe.

Should have decanted. Flavors started to integrate toward the end of the bottle. Nothing mind blowing.

Dark berries and eucalyptus, give a little time to open up and get interesting.

Fruit seemed a little overripe. I was hoping for a more Old World style but it was still tasty.
