Vinous Gigondas Romane Machotte 2020 

Vivid ruby. Sharply focused cherry, blueberry, licorice and floral scents pick up hints of smoky minerals and succulent herbs with aeration. Juicy and energetic on the palate, the bitter cherry, candied licorice, expresso and lavender flavors firm up steadily through the back half. Youthfully gripping tannins sneak in late on a very long spicy finish that echoes the licorice and cherry notes.
