From one of my favorite estates, the 2019 Vacqueyras Tradition offers up a beautiful bouquet of ripe cassis and blackberry fruits as well as violets, spring flowers, and peppery herbs. Most 2019s are rich and opulent, but this holds onto a wonderful sense of purity and elegance, with medium to full body, integrated acidity, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's a no brainer purchase. The blend is 44% each of Grenache and Syrah, with the balance Mourv?dre.
