Restrained and stylish, loaded with gorgeous layers of cassis, raspberry and damson plum fruit that stream along, lined with anise, shiso leaf and iron notes. The long, pure finish shows terrific cut and focus. This should expand considerably in the cellar, as there’s some latent grip. A superb effort for the vintage. Best from 2017 through 2030. From France. — J.M.

Complex, highly perfumed scents of ripe raspberry, boysenberry and incense, with hints of allspice and white pepper gaining power as the wine opens in the glass. Juicy, seamless and alluringly sweet, with nervy red fruit flavors showing excellent depth. This suave, vivacious wine finishes with well-integrated tannins and wonderful purity and length. -- Josh Raynolds

My favorite wine in the lineup was the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac. Coming from a plot of old vines located on the western side of the appellation and made from 100% Grenache, it offers vintage-defying levels of blackberry, currants, licorice and smoked herbs on the nose. These carry to a full-bodied, inky colored Châteauneuf du Pape that has a superb, voluptuous texture, excellent mid-palate depth and sweet tannin, all of which suggest it will evolve for 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Brilliant ruby-red. Explosively perfumed aromas of fresh raspberry, spicecake and potpourri take on a smoky mineral nuance with air.

Explosively perfumed aromas of fresh raspberry, spicecake and potpourri take on a smoky mineral nuance with air. Offers palate-staining red fruit and floral flavors that stretch out and turn sweeter and spicier with air. Closes silky, minerally and long, with sneaky tannins and an emphatic echo of raspberry. -- Josh Raynolds
