"Bright ruby-red color. Good aromatic intensity with a high concentration of red fruits (blackcurrant, raspberry, blackberry). The palate is rich, round, concentrated, with silky tannins and powerful notes of blackberry, cassis, raspberry, and blueberry, extending to a long finish." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
The 2013 Cuvée Nicolas is pure, fruit-dominant, and utterly delicious with flavors of fresh raspberry and bright cherry liqueur to spark the palate. An herbal lift and a hint of licorice enhances the sweetness of the fruit in this muscular yet silky-smooth 2013. With structure to spare, this is one value that will still have outstanding drinking potential several years down the line!
"Another superb value, the 2013 Cuvee Nicolas Vieilles Vignes is 100% Grenache that spent six months in barrel, on lees, prior to being bottle unfiltered. It offers up a forward, mid-weight, sexy feel in its kirsch, dried herbs, earth and spring-flower-driven bouquet. While I prefer the 2012 (surprisingly), this medium-bodied, forward and well-made beauty will drink nicely for 3-5 years." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
