2014 Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge
Bright garnet color. Baked, citrusy, clean, dusty, earthy aromas and flavors of tart red cherries, cooked black raspberry, fresh barnyard and leather, and vanilla and clove with a lightly tannic, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, charming, medium-length cherry candies, orange liqueur with cinnamon, and exotic musk finish with soft, silky, fruit, medium, dusty tannins and moderate oak. A heavenly, fresh and fruit-forward style of Chateauneuf.
