Rhone Red Blends from Gigondas, Rhone, France. Winemaker's Notes: The color of the 2013 Gigondas is almost black. The wines have a great concentration and maybe a little less "softness" than usual. A few weeks after the final blend, it revealed itself excellent with a very seducing profile. With its obvious explosion of fruit, Gigondas 2013 is dense and intense with notes of strawberry, blackcurrant, licorice, and black pepper. Bottled without any filtration. Blend: 50% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault


92 Points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by candied violet and cracked pepper; really shows its Syrah component. Spicy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that open slowly with air. Very northern Rhône in character, with firm tannins adding grip to a peppery, floral finish. Barrel Sample: 90-92 Points"

91 Points Wine Spectator - "Offers a solid, fleshy feel, with lots of crushed plum, warm raspberry and steeped black cherry fruit flavors rolled together. Notes of black tea, licorice root and alder fill in on the finish. Very well done for the vintage. Drink now through 2020."

90 Points The Wine Advocate - "Starting with the classic cuvée, the 2013 Gigondas comes from a variety of terroir and is made from 60% Grenache and 20% each of Syrah and Mourvedre. Vinified with 100% whole clusters and aged twelve months in older smaller barrels and concrete tanks, it offers classic Saint Cosme notes of black currants, mulberries, licorice and peppery spice in a medium-bodied, moderately concentrated, yet beautifully balanced style the palate. It’s ideal for drinking anytime over the coming 5-7 7 years."
