Domaine de la Tourade Gigondas, 2009

As a match for beef entrees, I usually choose Gigondas, and I am nearly always happy with my choice.

Deep, dark color but no sign of aging in small oak barrels. Beautiful scents of red and blue berries, violets and a talcum-like smell that I associate strongly with Gigondas. Power and beauty. Balance leans a bit more toward tannin and alcohol than I prefer, but the wine is still very enjoyable and a good match for marinated flank steak.
