"The 2017 Vacqueyras Vieilles Vignes is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre. It's one of the few Vacqueyras I recommend cellaring more than a few years, as it possesses terrific fruit intensity and concentrated (but ripe) tannins. Floral notes and black cherries pick up hints of chocolate and espresso on the long, rich, velvety finish." (WA)

"Glistening ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice and a hint of espresso on the deeply perfumed nose. Broad and fleshy on entry, offering bitter cherry, cassis and spicecake flavors that unfold through the midpalate. Finishes on a smoky note, with a repeating licorice quality and sneaky tannins that add closing grip." (VM)
