This is the second wine of Vieux Telegraphe. Dark garnet in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose is nice with spices, garrigue, and black cherries. It has a soft but inviting texture. Black cherry fruit with baking spices. A bit of cough syrup on the finish. With air, just a touch of prunes. The is drinking a bit better than the first wine at the moment and one to drink while waiting on the bigger 2018's. It should drink well for another ten years. This will work well with meats and fowl. A burger would work well.
