Domaine St. Damien, Les Souteyrades Vieilles Vignes Gigondas 2014, Rhone, France
Tasting Note: A Rhone blend that delivers an elegant, medium-bodied expression of just-ripened red-and-black fruit.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a nose of red plum, black currant, bing cherry, raisin and cranberry with hints of rhubarb.
On the palate, the dry, medium-bodied, Rhone blend delivers red-and-black fruit flavors suggested on the nose along with ripe, medium tannin.
The wine has a smooth texture with pleasurable moments of mid-palate concentration and some floral notes.
