Sipping Fine Wine

E Guigal produces fine Rhône wines. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit and simple spice. On the palate juicy flavors of black plum and blackberry fruit, pepper and black olive notes, vivid acidity, good balance. Firm tannins (needs decanting) lingering finish ending with spicy fruit character. Drink now and over next 5 years. Good value.

Fruit forward; slightly bitter, soapy even. Good punch of acid; tannin is there but dissipates quickly. Medium length of finish.

Very tight. More notes later.

In 375. After an hour, some very nice mineral notes came out, and some tart-ish berries. This wine needs time and/or air.

Not overly complex, but a perfect blind. Peppery, black olives, and gamey.

Sweet red fruits and berries, almost candy like, mixed with a hint of stinky component. Quote pleasant actually. Smooth tannin but not very complex. Solid @$19.99.

Very solid classic example of Napa Rhone Syrah. Black fruit, smoke, pepper, bacon it may not be too shelf but it's very serviceable.
