This is delicious and affordable in an easy-drinking and forward style. Earth, berries, red and dark fruits and licorice blend in a rich, warm and inviting manner. The finish is fresh and clean and has a gravely, pebbly character.

Something about this wine really brought me back in time to remind me how much I enjoy Southern Rhone wines. I started drinking Chateauneuf-du-Pape as I came of age as a young man in the greater New York City area. However, I didn’t really know what it was. It came in a cool bottle, tasted good, and was fun to say. Fast forward to the start of my wine career when the 1998 vintage reached our shores. I was blown away by the overall quality and complexity of the wines. Most importantly, they just seemed to mesh with my palate. This caused an intrigue on my part which had me exploring every nook and cranny in the greater southern Rhone. I tasted through all the villages and quickly realized how wonderful the Vacqueyras wines were. Not only could they compete in quality, they also possessed an elegance and grace I’d not come across before. Best of all, the affordable prices of these wines made them hard to ignore. All that ran through my mind as I tasted this wine recently. I strongly suggest you check it out. Drink it or age it. It’ll go the distance.

As much as I love Italian wine, I'm always on the hunt for great Rhone reds and this is certainly a find! This outstanding Grenache Syrah blend captures the richness and power of fruit of 2015 and combines it with classic Rhone characters of garrigue, pepper, dried tobacco and licorice. Although the fruit takes center stage, it's neither overripe nor alcoholic and the wine is sensational to drink now. Lamb or braised ribs with this one.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
