Sipping Fine Wine

E Guigal produces fine Rhône wines, had this a while ago, tried again. Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit and earthy spice. On the palate flavors of black cherry and blackberry fruit, cacao, leather and earth notes, vivid acidity on well structured frame. Fine tannins, lingering finish ending with fruit character. Good now will cellar well, a bargain compared to its Hermitage neighbors.

Always a hit. Earthy, leathery, a little moss funk. Ripe red fruit and some supporting acid and tanning keep the balance right.

Delicious, affordable, and easy to find, even in liquor stores with so-so wine selections. Crushed rock, pronounced spice, herbs, dark fruit and integrated tannin.

This Rhone is never bad, but rarely great. A dried flower note on nose, some sweetness. Sweeter on palate, with some cherry, but thin. Always well made, but not always memorable. Bottle #3 in Maine.

Deep burgundy color with a bit of an acetone smell. Long legs. Strong spice taste and comes in like a lion and out like a lamb (finishes weaker than it starts).
