Gigondas. 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre

Bought several of these Sunday returning from golf in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Very approachable now with silky dark fruit, spice and earthy notes of chocolate on the long finish. Very full and round in the mouth. Delicious modern style. Saved half in a .375 for later, in a week sampling, as didn't look at the alcohol when purchased. No heat detected though with the 15%Alc/vol. $23
