Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Deeply saturated, black purple color and super ripe, back fruit with notes of dark cherry, licorice and spices. The texture is dense yet it has a remarkable freshness on the finish, because Guy Ricard was vigilant about not allowing the grapes to reach sur-maturite.
"Deep ruby. Red and dark berry aromas are complemented by Asian spices and floral oils. Energetic but deep in raspberry and blackberry flavor. Shows a refreshingly spicy quality on the finish, which clings with very good authority and length."

"Ripe and fleshy, delivering a lovely velvety feel to the crushed plum, braised fig and steeped red and black currant fruit notes, all backed by roasted mesquite and tobacco flavors. This is broad, but well-defined, too. Rock-solid. Drink now through 2015. 700 cases imported."
"The most forward and drinkable of these offerings is the 2009 Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique, which is a blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre primarily aged in cement tanks. This gorgeous effort reveals abundant notes of tapenade, black cherries, soy, new saddle leather, blackberries and earth. This seductive, round, generous, pure, velvety-textured 2009 should drink well for 7-8 years. "
