Sexy, spice-accented aromas of fresh dark berries and potpourri, with a mineral element adding vivacity. Offers sweet black raspberry and floral pastille flavors, along with suggestions of cola and white pepper that build on the back half. This juicy, open-knit, gently tannic Châteauneuf finishes with superb clarity and length and an echoing quality. -- Josh Raynolds

The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Colombis (100% Grenache from 70-year-old vines) is an elegant, seamless and medium-bodied example of this cuvee that also saw no destemming and aging in oak tanks. Giving up perfumed kirsch and darker berry fruits, spice-box, toasted bread and cocoa-like aromas and flavors, it’s relatively forward, supple and already approachable. Nevertheless, there’s ample fine tannin here, and this cuvée has a tendency to put on weight and richness in bottle. Give it another year or two and enjoy bottles through 2024. - Jeb Dunnuck

Wine Spectator, November 2014
A flattering, velvety style, with plum cake, melted licorice, raspberry coulis and cherry reduction notes that drive through the finish, supported by a graphite edge. A fruit-driven version for the hedonist crowd. Drink...

A fruit-driven version for the hedonist crowd. Drink now through 2024. – JM
