Really impressed with this #vinsobres #vieillesvignes. Dark ruby red. Aromas of blackcurrant and jammy raspberry, with pepper and spice notes. Fruit well set, but a bit spicy-tart on entry. Sleek texture and smooth tannins. Noticeable minerality on finish. Needs an hour to open up; a day will probably really help! Can’t remember where I found this bottle (maybe Costco or Fred Meyer?) but it’s in the sub-$20 category; an excellent value #southernrhone #2013vintage #tablewine.
