Domaine du Cayron, Gigondas 1999

Very deep red.

Vinturi - deep, dense nose - wilted/grilled herbs, blood/iron, savory meat, dried fig, earth/spice. Wild, killer.

Deep and extremely plush, with assertive tannin moving in late. Nose repeated in flavors that go the distance. Herbs and iron on the long, grainy finish. RFG. Needs something dead.
