Community Tasting Notes 4

    September 21, 2017 - Blue warm fruit, earthy flavors. Still good acidity and clear tannins. Around peak time right now I would say but is probably good for some more years.

    November 28, 2015 - Excellent value, exuberant yet fresh and balanced. Stylish yet ripe fruit and beautiful spicy notes.

    October 30, 2015 - Quite a muscular expression of Gigondas that has classic garrigue aromas along with black licorice, lilac and beef blood notes that make for a fascinating start. The dark fruited palate is wonderfully savory in nature with chewy tannins that impart notes of leather and game, that in turn are balanced with some lighter minty elements.

    June 20, 2015 - Showes chocolate and cherry at opening with smell of garigue. Some lavender and classy pepper by moment. Rich but smooth tannins. A little hot. To my taste, the wine is close to is peak if is not peaking right now. I would drink it by 2018. Really like it for 30$
