Deep and dark. Lifted red and black fruits with prominent garrigue (Provencal herbs). Unmistakable Gigondas personality.. Beautiful velvety mouth feel with prominent tannins but powerful fruit flavors peeking through. The finish is relatively short today but offering promise of great things to come. I would love to taste this wine at 8 to 10 years of age. My score: 19 out of 20.
