Intense forest fruit accented by a gamey undertone. A hearty palate with excellent length of finish.
"Ruby-red. Raw crushed raspberry, tree bark and pepper on the nose; quintessential Northern Rhone syrah. Sweet and supple but on the lean side, with expressive, peppery flavor. If the Cotes du Rhone is Guigal's top value from the South, this is the house's steal from the North."
