Wine Advocate | Rating: 91Rick Burge's 2000 Old Vines Grenache, a 250-case cuvee made from 70-80-year old vines, was aged in old oak prior to bottling. This dark ruby/purple-colored 2000 exhibits a classic bouquet of pepper and kirsch liqueur, outstanding extract, and sweet, cherry jam-like flavors. Its perfume, texture, and pure fruit are reminiscent of a Rayas Chateauneuf du Pape.Author: Robert Parker
