2019 vintage. Last tasted 4.6.22. Medium-medium/heavy body. It’s got the garrigue stink (Mediterranean herbs/native scrub flora…similar to the Southern California herbs/native scrub & chaparral) and smoky nose. Prominent lavender, fudgie flavors thin out slightly on the finish. Definitely brooding. Hide a bottle or two away for future considerations but it’s firing now. Not a lot of Vacqueyras juice escapes from France (not a lot made) since it’s a relatively smallish, SoRhô (Southern Rhône) area. Generally, fantastic value play on resto lists or in the retail world. This one is no exception. 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault/Mouvèdre mystery combo. Vines are 35-40 years old. If you encounter this out in the wild, throw a net over it and wrangle it back to camp.
