2016 Famille Isabel Ferrando Colombis  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 98
Compelling from start to finish, the nose, with all of its showy, ripe, spicy fruits, flowers, and herbs is the initial grab. But it is on the full-bodied, dense, rich, opulent, multi-faceted palate, with its non-stop layers of ripe, vibrant, pure, peppery, deep red fruits that seals the deal. Drink from 2022-2035.

When to Drink Domaine Isabel Ferrando, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Domaine Isabel Ferrando can be enjoyed young, with about 1-2 hours of decanting. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Domaine Isabel Ferrando is usually better with 3-4 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. In the best vintages the wine should be consumed within 4-18 years after the vintage.
