Description

Sexy, curvy and voluptuous!  Beautifully defined!  Not over ripe or flabby, as the gorgeous crisp acidity lifts and carries this full-bodied red and shows off the vivid and intense black raspberry fruit.  Just too much fun to drink now!  – ES/TWC

“2016 Vacqueyras Cuvee Speciale features bold purple raspberry fruit and hints of chocolaty richness, all balanced by crisp acids and a bright, zesty finish. It’s full-bodied, with plenty of ripe tannins, so give it until 2020 or so to open up.” (92-94) – Wine Advocate, August 31st, 2018

“Very perfumey, with spice-infused cherry and raspberry compote notes that are enhanced by lavender and singed mesquite hints. The lightly juicy finish is sneakily long, showing a latent mineral detail. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2023. 320 cases made, 67 cases imported.” – 92 points, Wine Spectator — JM , October 31, 2019
