  • E Guigal Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy and concentrated black cherry and blackberry aromas. Soft and earthy in the mouth with a dry dusty palate and a bit of tar - muted fruit notes of cherry and blackberry and a black olive finish that's chewy with textured tannins and a creamy smoke on the tail. Read More
