Drank this wine this afternoon and through the evening.

I read that it is a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Cinault and 10% Mouvedre or something close to that.

For under $15, it's not a bad wine but rather one dimensional. I have to say that while I didn enjoy it, but it has a fruit quality that I really don't know how to put into words. All I can say is that it comes across either slightly pruney, or too fruity and in a fruity manner that I don't appreciate enough to go back and buy more. Maybe this is what Gigondas is like and I might not be a fan of it, as I haven't had one in 3 or 4 years.
