A hint of oak is matched with sweet black cherry in the nose and fleshy, plush textures. The wine ends with a touch of oak and round, sweet red berries. Modern in style, I liked it, but others might not like it as much. This blend of 13 varietals turned out to be 14.5% ABV.

Ripe, fleshy, polished and fresh, this modern styled Chateauneuf du Pape is filled with kirsch, jam, coffee bean and spice. Generally speaking, I do not like oak with my Grenache. But previous vintages have come together quite nicely with time. I expect that to happen with this as well.

A hint of oak remains, along with copious amounts of lush, fat, juicy cherries, fennel and kirsch. Rich, round and forward, you can drink it now, if you like it on the young side, or give it more time in the bottle.

Fully mature, the wine offers equal parts of earth, garrigue, smoke and pepper, as it does, very ripe red fruits. Soft and round in texture, the wine is not meant to age much past this point. If I had any bottles in my cellar, I'd look to drink them over the next few years.
