This is such a great, refined style here, it was impossible to put down the glass. The ability to age and enjoy young, is rare combination to find, but that's what you get here. The wine was made blending 80% Grenache, 10% Cinsault and 10% Syrah.

Blackcurrants, black olives, licorice, and peppery notes all flow to a ripe, sexy, opulent Châteauneuf-du-Pape that has terrific purity, ripe tannin, and a great finish. It's a no-brainer purchase. collapse

The palate is robust and mouthfilling yet briskly balanced and anchored by fine, persistent tannins. It's an elegant but immediately approachable wine to drink now through 2028. - ANNA LEE C.

Full-bodied and even a bit chewy, it picks up hints of mocha and licorice on the long finish. It's a blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each Cinsault and Syrah, matured in foudres and oak vats. - JC collapse

The long finish shows a tug of earth and a light floral gilding. Best from 2019 through 2030. 392 cases imported. –JM collapse

Ripe red berries and hints of musky earth and cola on the mineral-accented nose. Raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show good clarity, silky texture and a hint of white pepper that builds steadily as the wine opens up. The subtly sweet finish repeats the red fruit note while supple tannins add shape and gentle grip. -- Josh Raynolds collapse
