TASTING NOTE: This is lovely very classy Rhone blend of mostly grenache and syrah from the southern Rhone village of Vacqueras. The perfumed complex nose shows raspberry and candied red cherry with hints of tobacco, lemon, and warm spice. It is midweight, round and finely balanced with some firm tannin giving grip to the finish. Pure and clean with its power nicely tamed by soft acidity. Very good length. For fine dining with roast or grilled meats, or rich creamy cheese like Brie. Score - 90 (Steve Thurlow, winealign.com, April 20, 2018) Price $ 19.95
