"Juicy, with a briary frame to the mix of linzer torte, blackberry and black currant fruit, pushed by extra anise and roasted apple wood on the slightly gutsy finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. Best from 2012 through 2017"

Rhone fans, check this wine out - I'm not always a huge fan of Gigondas... they often taste too green and flowery for my taste, but I truly enjoyed this one. This is tasty stuff... slightly peppery and lots of fruit. Probably could use 3 years in the bottle to mature.
