Description

Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, cherry compote, garrigue and peppery spices on the perfumed nose. Focused red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, showing very good clarity and spicy lift. The cherry quality comes back strong on the persistent finish, which is given shape by silky, harmonious tannins. – Josh Raynolds, Vinous

Pro Reviews

Wine Spectactor (WS)

WS90

This has a slightly firm edge of roasted alder and juniper, melded nicely into the core of dried currant, cherry and plum fruit. The finish picks up bay and warm paving stone notes. Shows good old-school character, with the spine to age a bit longer. Drink now through 2022. 2,000 cases imported. –JM

Wine Advocate (WA)

WA89-92

Still not yet bottled, the 2012 Gigondas showed considerably better this go around and I’m confident it will end up being an outstanding wine. Made from 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre, it offers impressive ripeness in its smoked herbs, garrigue, olive and pepper-laced Grenache fruit. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and even sexy, it will drink nicely on release and evolve gracefully over the following decade or more. -Jeb Dunnuck
