Fresh raspberry and blackberry puree flavors form the core, with light anise, black tea and mesquite notes darting about. Racy acidity stretches this out through the finish. Solid. Drink now through 2028.

Blackberries, black cherries, crushed flowers, and incense notes all emerge from the 2016 Gigondas. Based on 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, brought up all in concrete, it has a terrific sense of elegance and purity, beautiful balance, medium to full body, and integrated, fine tannins. It’s a big step up over the 2015 and will keep for a decade or so.

A 70-30 blend of Grenache and Syrah, aged all in concrete, this 2016 Gigondas delivers notes of black cherries, cinnamon, and mocha. It's full-bodied, supple and creamy in texture on the mid-palate, then firms up on the finish to show some slightly dry tannins. Give it a year or two in the cellar and drink it over the next decade.
