DESCRIPTION

The classic 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape checks in at around 75% Grenache, 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, and a splash of Cinsault. This rock star traditional cuvée gives up loads of black licorice, garrigue, black raspberries, and kirsch liqueur. It's powerful and full-bodied, yet elegant and seamless, with fine tannin, no hard edges, and a great finish. Despite the richness and weight, it stays weightless and elegant, with silky tannin. Don't miss it.  Jeb Dunnuck 93
  A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% each Cinsault and Mourvèdre, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is full-bodied, rich and round. Despite being a touch on the warm side, it's deceptively easy to drink, with sexy flavors of raspberries and chocolate that glide to a smooth, lingering finish.  Wine Advocate 92

Brilliant ruby-red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, garrigue and potpourri, along with subtle woodsmoke and white pepper notes. Sweet, seamless and focused on the palate, offering juicy raspberry liqueur, spicecake and allspice flavors firmed by a spine of juicy acidity. Delivers a solid flavor punch but comes off graceful; a suave candied lavender note drives the gently tannic finish.
