Blackberry flavor, black pepper, long finish.
The good things you've heard about the 2007 vintage in the Rhone are true. Very good full-bodied bottle for $19.99. Vacqueyras has positioned itself as a bargain alternative to Chateauneuf du Pape. A few more vintages like this and they may decide to stand on their own.
