Oriel Red Rhone Blend Gigondas Jocunda 2005
Aroma: Ripe black fruit with hints of sage, rosemary and thyme. Taste: Rich blackcurrant and mulberry with sweet tannins and a long, persistent finish. Name story: Jocunda, meaning joyful, is derived from Jocunditas, the old Roman name for GigondasÃ¢ÂÂcelebrated by Pliny in the First century. Vineyards and winemaking: Mediterranean limestone soils lend a bold character and allow for slow maturation. Hand picked, macerated and aged for 6 monthsÃ¢ÂÂhalf in stainless steel and half in oak.
Plummy black berry fruit aromas. Bold black fruit palate with a bit of pepper and cocoa nibs. Lingers nicely. Would be great with a juicy steak.
excellent! easy to drink, slight spice, medium to full body. recommended.
