The BIG Red Blend earns 90 Points by Wine Enthusiast Magazine

by: Aileen Niizawa Morris

2019 Pillars of Hercules Red Blend, Giguiere Estate 
90 POINTS, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, October 2021
“This is a serious, deep blend that celebrates ripeness and concentration without much tannin. It’s velvety on the palate, showing flavors of dark chocolate, blackberry and a hint of cocoa that give it plenty to savor.” –Jim Gordon
