Vinous Gigondas Le Pas de L’Aigle 2018 

Shimmering ruby-red. A smoke- and spice-accented bouquet displays cherry-cola, black raspberry and pungent floral scents. Expressive sweet red and dark berry and spicecake flavors are complemented by hints of lavender and smoky minerals. Shows fine definition and spicy cut on a long, gently tannic finish that echoes the floral note.
