Lush and plush. Good acidity and tannins but nice finish. Pronounced pepperiness from the syrah. Will maybe cure me of my obsession with portuguese wines? $3 dollars off at the LCBO!

Ever reliable Guigal has again produced a good, authentic Cotes du Rhone. Soft, approachable, with a solid core of fruit. along with typical notes of black pepper and herbs. Yet, I feel that the '12 is a notch or two behind the '11. Not as complex and a bit rustic. Good, no doubt, but not compelling value at $20 (I picked up on sale for $17). Tasted Aug 2016.
