Wine Review: This ruby colored Grenache based wine from Gigondas opens with a musty cedar and black cherry bouquet. On the palate this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is a balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a gentle raspberry tea and black plum blend with notes of graphite and red beet. I also detected hints of strawberry. The finish is dry and its fine tannins and flavors fades away nicely. This Gigondas would pair nicely with a bison burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A 2021 vintage with a Grenache imprint. The nose is fruity, a mixture of raspberry, wild strawberry, and red currant. Also perceived are typical scents of dark chocolate mixed with notes of morello cherry and kirsch. The mouth is supple, round, with a nice sweetness underpinned by the aromas of fruit paste. Enjoy it now or keep it in your cellar for 8 to 10 years.
