This 2013 Gigondas is a perfect match for grilled New York Strip steak. Although it will likely gain some complexity with age, I like the straightforward rustic personality at this stage of development.
Deep and dark. Scents and flavors of black raspberry, dark cherry, thyme and licorice. Classic Gigondas, rich, ripe and moderately powerful. I have one more bottle but wish I had more so I could follow it over the next decade. For tonight, though--perfection!
