Smells of candied apricot, dried fig, and Smokey edges.
Medium bodied, yet towards the heavier side, deep Smokey fruits, tabac, black cherry rolling around in the hay with some garrique and acidity. Dark tones linger on like a good old fashioned Edgar Allen Poe story.. — 2 days ago
Tonnes of black and red berries on the nose, somehow very rich and full but also quite light. Smooth, low to medium tannin on palate, slightly tart. Finish is slightly dry, very well balanced with coffee and raspberry.

From Kroger, under $20. Lighter and fruity, not as mineraly as expected, but enough to give it depth. Nate liked too. — 7 days ago
This spicy, Grenache-based Vacqueyras exudes Provençal lushness and charm, with abundant raspberry, bitter cherry and floral notes. Substantial enough for rich winter fare, the 2017 also has the energy to pair well with lighter foods. It’s still young, so a quick decant is in order. $25.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, December 2019) — 5 days ago
Smoothe, balanced Cote du Rhone. Easy drinking. Dark garnet, good body, rich dark berries. — 4 days ago
