Prat Sura Vacqueyras La Cuvee

We taste a lot of wines, and most do not make the cut.  We recently tasted a bunch of new wines, this one stood out as the best of the lot!  Great bottle!!

2016 Prat Sura Vacqueyras La Cuvee...$34.99
Based on 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, the 2016 Vacqueyras La Cuvée is another inky colored effort that has a modern slant yet is beautifully done. Blackberries, cassis, roasted herbs, chocolate, and gravelly mineral notes all emerge from this rockingly textured, balanced, full-bodied effort. It's more rounded and sexier than the Réserve cuvée yet should keep just as long.
Rated 94/100 Jeb Dunnuck
