Wine Description

(2004 Vintage) "The 2004 Gigondas (75% Grenache and 25% Syrah) reveals more sweetness, mid-palate, and length than the 2003, but similar black cherry, blackberry, licorice, smoke, earth, and roasted meat characteristics. It is a delicious, vibrant, potentially longer-lived offering that should last for 10-12 years." - Wine Advocate 91-93 Points

    (2005 Vintage) Rating: 90-93 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 130, January/February 2007 Deep ruby. Spicy cherry and redcurrant on the nose, with a strong peppery aspect. Seriously structured Gigondas with deep, powerful kirsch and licorice flavors and excellent finishing thrust. This reportedly fermented until September of 2006.
