Gorgeous, with a lush core of raspberry, blueberry and boysenberry puree flavors gliding through, flecked with anise, violet and incense notes. Carried by fresh, well-embedded acidity, this is lush and beguiling through the lengthy finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. – JM

While crisp black-cherry and strawberry flavors are fresh and pristine on the nose, this is an opulent, powerful red. Dried-strawberry and plum flavors are concentrated, accented by hints of earth and firm, taut tannins... While crisp black-cherry and strawberry flavors are fresh and pristine on the nose, this is an opulent, powerful red. Dried-strawberry and plum flavors are concentrated, accented by hints of earth and firm, taut tannins. It's luscious red-fruit flavors are approachable already but firm structure and fresh acidity should allow integration and improvement through 2030 and hold further still. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA

Lively mineral- and spice-tinged red berry aromas are complemented by hints of lavender and candied licorice. Smooth and well-delineated on the palate, offering concentrated raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and an exotic floral pastille quality. Shows a sweeter quality on the persistent finish, which is framed by smooth tannins that fade into the juicy fruit. -- Josh Raynolds

Even Vadieu's "regular" CdP is excellent. The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape, an 80-20 blend of Grenache and Syrah mostly aged in concrete, offers ripe red raspberry and apricot notes alongside delicate hints of spice and garrigue. Full-bodied and lush, it shows off wonderfully ripe Grenache fruit without much in the way of other adornment or artifice, finishing long and silky. - Joe Czerwinski

Spicy, fresh, black raspberries, herbs and bay leaf jump right up. On the palate, the wine is sweet, fresh and invigorating with loads of spicy, juicy, dark kirsch notes in the finish. Read more...
