Winemaker's Notes

Bright ruby. Floral-accented aromas of raspberry, candied cherry and white pepper. Supple and appealingly fruity, offering jammy red and dark berry flavors that pick up spiciness with air. Finishes with slow-building tannins, a lingering raspberry note and a pleasantly chewy quality.

Critical Acclaim

"Moving to the reds, and an outstanding 2011, the traditional 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 70% Grenache, 10% each of Syrah and Mourvedre, and the balance Cinsault, which was aged all in foudre. Silky and polished, with ultra-fine tannin, medium-bodied richness and spice-laced aromas of blackberry fruit, licorice and brown spice, it is already approachable and delicious, yet should evolve gracefully given its overall balance and elegance. Drink now-2021."
90 Points

"Vivid ruby-red. Fresh red and dark berries on the perfumed, spice-accented nose. Offers juicy black raspberry and spicecake flavors and a hint of white pepper, with a touch of licorice in the background. Closes spicy and long, with sneaky tannins adding shape and grip."
90 Points
