WTN: 2004 Domaine le Colombier Vacqueyras Vielles Vignes

Paid $15ish about 3 years ago for what I perceived as excellent qpr at the time. And time certainly has been a kind judge so far. Dark shimmering ruby in the glass, pungent aromas of wild strawberry, spice, and flowers. Nice medium bodied mouthfeel with tannins that have just a wisp of an edge to them. Nice jolt of tart fruits on the finish as the acidity makes for a fresh lively finish. Held up swimmingly over 3 days. Purchased from Corridor Fine Wine Laurel, MD. W.J. Deutch Imports, Alfio Moriconi Selection.

Where was I when this was poured? Why isn't more of this in my cellar? Were you and Wahomme hogging it? :mrgreen:

Nice note and welcome to the board! Keep up the good work!

I don't why you don't have this lurking in your cellar, but thankfully I have more to spare/share. :mrgreen:
