Vinous Gigondas Domaine Grand Romane 2021 

Saturated ruby. Mineral- and spice-accented black and blue fruit preserve scents show sharp clarity and are complemented by suggestions of vanilla and succulent flowers. Seamless and deep in the mouth, the sweet blueberry, cherry liqueur, spicecake and candied lavender flavors are supported by a core of juicy acidity. It finished impressively long and spicy, with harmonious, slow-building tannins.
