2004 Perrin & Fils Vacqueyras – Les Christins (France-Rhone)

This might be one of the best value wines I’ve had all year. It’s a Rhone blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. It was also listed as one of Wine Spectators Top 100 wines of the year.

Deep ruby colored with rich aromas of both jammy dark fruit and Indian spice. Blueberries and black currant. Some notes of licorice or anise. Mouth coating and lush texture. Long finish.

This wine is around but is getting harder to find after being “anointed” by Wine Spectator. My bottles were bought at Garnet Wine and Spirits on the Upper East Side for $15.
