2019 Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 91

Garrigue, green olives and peppery kirsch shows up easily on the nose. The medium-bodied, soft, sweet, fresh, kirsch palate is already disarmingly easy to taste. I like how the kirsch notes stick with you, finishing with hints of dust in the finish. The wine is a blend of 80% Grenache with Syrah, and Cinsault. Drink from 2022 - 2032 91 Points

Following the initial note of ripe, white peach, the wine quickly moves to its core of honeysuckle and fresh, sweet citrus. On the palate the wine is juicy and fresh with the perfect snap to the yellow fruit in the finish. Drink from 2022 - 2028 92 Points
