Solitude's 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape is 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 10% Cinsault, aged in a combination of barriques, demi-muids, foudres and concrete (only one-fourth went into wood).

For the vintage, it shows a fair bit of structure, with fine-grained tannins framing notes of black cherries, dark chocolate and various dried spices. Medium to full-bodied, it's not the biggest wine of the vintage but is a nicely balanced, reasonably traditional example of Châteauneuf du Pape. - JC

Loaded with ripe cherry and more red berry fruits as well as plenty of peppery garrigue and spice, it’s medium-bodied and has light tannins, terrific overall balance, and a great finish. It’s already impossible to resist, and I suspect it will be best enjoyed over the coming 10-12 years.
