Has a subtle, refined, minerally, midpalate sweetness that coats the taste buds. Ends with lovely, light-winged balance and black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors. Best from 2003 through 2015. 5,000 cases made. -PM Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 1998 Domaine les Pallieres Gigondas 750ml
