It's only wine but I like it

A fine Vacqueyras here, with all of the ripe fruit, local herbs and spice that make CdR reds so appealing. Oak is invisible (since it is aged 100% in tanks, no oak at all). Still firm but not astringent tannin and some crisp acidity on the finish. Picked up on sale for $21.75 and that was a steal. Drinking now, but I think even better in another year or so and should hold into the early '20s. Tasted April 2018.
