Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue 2009
Bright purple. Dark berry and cherry aromas are complemented by anise, tobacco and a slow-mounting floral quality. Fleshy cherry and redcurrant flavors are fresh and nicely focused. Finishes on a vivid cherry note, with silky tannins and very good persistence.Add winemaker's notes

Bright purple. Dark berry and cherry aromas are complemented by anise, tobacco and a slow-mounting floral quality. Fleshy cherry and redcurrant flavors are fresh and nicely focused. Finishes on a vivid cherry note, with silky tannins and very good persistence.
Dark and rich, with inviting plum, fig and boysenberry notes backed by a racy, graphite-filled finish. Nicely buried acidity helps this stretch out. Drink now through 2013.
The 2009 Alain Jaume Vacqueyras Grande Garrigue is much more backward, displaying a denser blue/purple color, thicker, richer blue and black fruits, and hints of kirsch, lavender, and garrigue. Still grapy and unformed, but loaded with potential given its depth of concentration and richness, it will benefit from another 2andndash;3 months of bottle age, and keep for 5andndash;8 years.
