2017 Maison Arnoux & Fils Vacqueyras Vieux Clocher Rhone France
Deep ruby. Powerful dark berry, licorice and cola aromas unfold slowly with air, taking on hints of cracked pepper and herbs. Chewy and tightly focused, offering bitter cherry and blackberry flavors and a touch of earthiness. Building tannins add grip to the nicely persistent finish, which echoes the licorice and cherry notes. All foudres.
Rated 90 Points Vinous
