E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2018 (90 VM)
“Deep violet color. Ripe dark berry, cherry-cola and menthol aromas on the spice- and smoke-tinged nose. In a fleshy, open-knit style, showing good depth and a pleasing touch of jamminess to its broad black raspberry and cherry flavors. The spicy note recurs on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with very good tenacity.” -J.R 12/22
