The nose here is fine and focused if entirely dominated by the aromas of crushed blackberry, boysenberry and blueberry fruit. On the palate this is low, broad and extracted with dark fruit and powerfully woody tannins that saturate the palate and cut the finish short. This wine lacks balance and is dominated by unpleasant tannins and extracted fruit. 83pts

It took an hour in decanter before the nose began to show intense, yet focused blackberry fruit, fresh cedar, pepper and earthy minerals. On the palate it remained tight yet still revealed dark velvety fruit, violet candies, herbs, dark chocolate and hot spice. The finish was palate coating with a hint of drying tannin. This wine needs a few more years to open up and should be gorgeous once it does. (93 points)

Good Rhone blend. Decant or wait 2+ hours on this one. Light cherry Hi-C nose, but tasty. $23 89 points WKH

The bay leaf, alder and tobacco notes are well-defined, with a core of steeped plum, blackberry and black currant fruit sitting in reserve. Offers lots of briary grip and a long singed iron edge on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2025.

Deep ruby. Vibrant raspberry and strawberry scents are complicated by notes of dried lavender and Asian spices. Racy, pure red fruit flavors show very good depth and appealing sweetness. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lingering spiciness. This wine should drink well soon after release thanks to its lively fruit and gentle tannins.

Under the Chateau Saint-Cosme umbrella, the 2011 Gigondas (a 3,400-case blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah) exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as powerful blueberry, mulberry, black currant, licorice, graphite and truffle notes. This round, generously endowed, surprisingly deep and full 2011 should drink well for a decade.

Moving to the Gigondas cuvees, starting with the wines in bottle, the classic 2011 Gigondas is a serious effort that gets you a good bit of the class and richness found in the upper, single vineyard cuvees, yet for a lot less buck. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah, it gives up toasty, spice-driven notes of blackberries, ground pepper and cured meats that flow to a medium to full-bodied, textured and layered effort that has notable freshness and sweet tannin. It will shine for over a decade and represents an excellent value.

The black/purple 2010 Gigondas, which in this year is a blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 17% Mourvedre and the rest Cinsault, has loads of sweet blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with camphor, barbecue smoke and scorched earth.
