2013 Vaucluse Red Blend - Gard Vintners
Silky but concentrated, with plum skin, black currants and cocoa powder. A savory note weaves through, reminiscent of bay leaf and olive. The palate is thick, with black fruit, spice and a saline quality giving it a mouthwatering impression. The tannins provide framework, but are fine and melt away. The finish has great lift and has a fresh and floral black tea perfume.
