Paul Jaboulet Gigondas Pierre Aiguille 2009
Delicious wine. Still great on day 3. Dusty cherry and black fruit with generous tobacco and spice elements. Clean, refreshing acidity and good balance.

90 Points - Wine & Spirits"Stony and firm, this single-vineyard wine has a ruddy hue that matches its ferrous flavors. Mature notes of leather and orange give it a rustic edge, but it has a juiciness that lasts. For this springs first leg of lamb." -Tara Q. Thomas, February 1, 2010
