The 2009 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes (a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre from 40-year-old vines) is a rich full-bodied Gigondas with notes of crushed rock boysenberry black raspberry camphor and a hint of pen ink. The wine displays terrific fruit on the attack a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel with good acid superb purity texture and length. This deep ruby/purple-colored wine should drink well for at least 10-15 years.

Captivating mesquite sage and warm cherry confiture aromas lead the way followed by muscular black currant licorice snap and blackberry notes. The long iron- and tobacco-filled finish has serious heft but great cut. Best from 2012 through 2019. 450 cases imported. -JM

Opaque ruby. Dark berries cola and violet on the highly fragrant nose. Lush and expansive with very good depth and breadth to its sweet blackberry and cassis flavors. Brighter red fruits come up on the perfumed finish... Opaque ruby. Dark berries cola and violet on the highly fragrant nose. Lush and expansive with very good depth and breadth to its sweet blackberry and cassis flavors. Brighter red fruits come up on the perfumed finish which clings with impressive tenacity and length.

Light and smoky wisps of spice and olive come to the forefront of the nose and increase in intensity with a swirl of the glass. The palate offers dark fruit and medium-bodied tannins pleasantly accompanied by currants and a nice bit of acid. This could easily go 10 years. Good stuff!
