The 2009 Giscours has a medium to deep garnet color and delivers evolved prunes, baked blackberries and fruitcake scents with an earthy, dried herbs and potpourri undercurrent plus a waft of sweaty leather. The medium to full-bodied palate has a rugged frame of chewy tannins and a firm grip on the somewhat rustic finish.
