Review:

This wine was purchased at Killen’s Steakhouse in Pearland, Texas because we wanted some bomb ass wine with our bomb ass steak. Yes we overpaid for it but WHATEVER IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY MONTH GURL!

This wine is from France. Specifically from Gigondas and that's all you need to know.

In da nose I got heavy soil / earth notes with just a dime bag of licorice. It smelled like a classic Gigondas / Southern Rhone red that wanted to be in my body. In da mouf I got sweet oak, black currant (maybe the jelly version) and some fresh cracked pepper. An absolutely beautiful wine for a fine ass man like myself.

Gigondas, as I have said so many times before, is one of the most under appreciated wines in the industry and I'm cool with that because I can snatch them bitches up cheaper. I want this wine poured on me when I do something good.
