Dark red. Brighter and stonier than the Racines , with scents of strawberry, redcurrant and Asian spices underscored by dusty minerals. Racy, finely etched red fruit flavors stain the palate without showing any excess weight or rough edges. With a late note of succulent herbs, this is already showing good complexity, but this taut, well-balanced wine will be even better with a few years of bottle aging.



The 2008 Gigondas Les Terraces de Diable (80% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 5% Clairette, from 40-year-old vines planted at 200 to 400 foot elevation) is a medium ruby-colored effort displaying elegant, Pinot Noir-like notes of bay leaf, strawberries, forest floor and black cherries. Peppery, spicy and well-made in a very difficult vintage for Gigondas, it should drink well for 4-6 years.



Medium-weight, with a slightly raisined edge to the elegant plum and fig notes. There's a lingering black licorice edge on the finish. Drink now through 2012. 4,500 cases made. –JM
