Imported by Vineyard Brands. This is a blend of Grenache and Syrah sourced from 40-year-old vines. The nose was focused with red and blue fruit, supported by a hint of grapefruit, and eventually some good, earthy Gigondas stink. In the mouth the flavors were focused with the strength of the wine held in check by youth. The aftertaste revealed dark red fruit and was a little spicy. I would cellar this for five years.
