"This sensational 2012 Vacqueyras can be found discounted for $25 a bottle. A blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, it offers up meaty, black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit intermixed with roasted Provençal herbs, anise and a gamey smokiness. Medium to full-bodied, rich, chewy and intense, but supple and opulent, it is a well-crafted, full-throttle Vacqueyras to drink over the next 4-5 years. It is also a sleeper of the vintage. - Robert Parker"
