    Winemaker's Notes:

    Purple color, intense nose dominated by peach and apricot with licorice and notes of undergrowth. On the palate it is generous, powerful and full-bodied with a long elegant finish. Overall, the wine is racy with soft tannic structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe, with notes of mulling spices weaving around the core of steeped plum and macerated currant fruit. Hints of licorice snap, wood spice and black tea fill in on the fleshy finish.

    Wine Spectator

    A blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah that spent 24 months in older foudres, the 2010 Gigondas is a classic effort that offers up quality spice, underbrush, loamy soil and mulled dark fruits to go with a medium-bodied, rich, supple profile on the palate. Beautifully done, with chewy tannin lending some focus and grip on the finish, it should have 12-15 years of longevity.

    The Wine Advocate

    Reserved nose with potential; has a sweet, well-filled heart with a quiet note of blackberry jam. Nicely integrated with good black fruit and knitted tannins, this is too young to drink freely now but has a good future.
