Starting out, the 2011 Gigondas Vieilles Vignes is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvedre that spent 6 months in old foudre followed by a year in concrete tank. Its ruby/purple color is followed by a rich plum and kirsch driven-bouquet, with plenty of smoked meats, wild herbs, violets and spice-cake all emerging from the glass. A supple, heady and character filled Gigondas that has a knockout texture, notable freshness and a solid length, it should have a solid decade of longevity. Drink now–2021.

Deep ruby. Aromas of black raspberry, potpourri and smoky minerals, with a touch of Asian spices gaining strength with air. Densely packed but light on its feet, offering sweet, oak-spiced dark berry flavors and a touch of cola. Fine-grained tannins add shape to the clinging finish. This has gained in energy since I tasted it a year ago.

Bright ruby. Sexy, perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry and apricot, with slow-building florality. Juicy, expansive red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, picking up notes of lavender pastille and Asian spices on the back end. Very pretty alrea... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Glass-staining ruby. Exotic, pungent bouquet of blackberry, olive, cola and baking spices.

(80% grenache and 20% mourvedre, from vines averaging over 50 years of age) Dark ruby. Ripe raspberry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by smoked meat, licorice and dark chocolate. Fleshy and smooth, with deep dark berry preserve flavors and a ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2006 St Damien, Domaine Gigondas Vieilles Vignes 750ml
