This is a very ripe example of Gigondas made for the North American palate. On the nose, this wine opens up with aromas of blueberry-blackberry fruit, stewed plum, ground coffee, underbrush, dried herbs, violet and minerals notes. On the mouthfeel, full bodied, balance acidity, velvet tannins and solid core of ripe fruit. The finish is long with good depth of flavours and chest warming, slightly hot. Not exactly elegant with 15% alcohol, but very rich and enjoyable.

In general, I love wines from Gigondas. This wine is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. You can certainly feel the alcohol when you taste this, along with black tea, blueberry and blackberry with fantastic length on the finish. It's really yummy.
