2019 Château Sixtine  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 93

Lush, rich and vibrant with layers of licorice infused dark red berries, espresso, smoke, spice and plums permeate the nose. On the palate the wine is dark, deep, plush and polished, with solid concentration and layers of ripe, deep, round fruits and spice. Give the wine a few years to fully integrate and it will be an even better tasting experience. The wine is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 20% Syrah. Drink from 2024 - 2036 93 Points
