Long and intense, this is a super wine from Gigondas. The blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah is aged in a combination of old foudres and terra cotta jars.

Aromas of ripe red berries, cherry and candied flowers, along with candied licorice and exotic spice flourishes. Broad, fleshy and sweet, offering juicy raspberry, cherry-cola and spicecake flavors and a subtle hint of succulent herbs. Closes with superb tenacity, steadily building tannins and a strong echo of floral pastilles. -- Josh Raynolds

Raspberries, strawberries, spice, and incredible floral notes all emerge from this fresh, silky, layered effort that just glides across the palate. It’s not the biggest or richest wine in the lineup but shines for its nuance, complexity, and elegance. It will keep for 10-15 years.
