It's only wine but I like it

Solid, if unexciting Vacqueyras. Flavours dominated by red fruit, pepper and herbs with a bit of an oxidized note creeping in. Tannin is still noted but I suspect that this will never really mellow before the fruit fades. Still, authentically south Rhone. Tasted April 2016.
