Tasting Note: Tasting like a mini Châteauneuf du Pape, the 2013 Costières de Nîmes Vieilles Vignes is a terrific blend of 66% Grenache, 22% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre and 6% Carignan. Fermented with one-third whole clusters and aged in 25% French oak and the balance in concrete, it reveals a healthy purple color as well as classic black raspberry, pepper, licorice, dusty earth and bouquet garni. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, nicely textured and with some tannic grip on the finish, it's a smoking value that will drink well for at least 5-7 years. Score - 90.
