2020 Clos des Cazaux Vacqueyras Cuvee Saint Roch - 90 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"As to the reds, the 2020 Vacqueyras Saint Roch is mostly Grenache but includes 25% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, all raised in tank. It's a pretty, medium-bodied, elegant wine (which is the vintage) and offers some earthy red and black fruits, truffle, leather, and garrigue aromatics, fine tannins, and outstanding balance. Drink bottles over the coming 5-7 years or so."
