Domaine des Escaravailles 2004 Heritage 1924 Rasteau Grenache (Côtes du Rhône Villages)
A technically illegal cuvée of 100% Grenache, this is really lush and ripe at over 15% alcohol, yet it doesn’t show any heat. Instead, it’s a mouthfilling explosion of fruit ranging from black cherries to yellow peaches, yet it’s not at all heavy or fudge-like. With some time in the glass, slightly raisined notes appear. So drink it over the next year or two.
