Critical Acclaim

"A fantastic looking 2012 and a blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre and 5% Syrah that will spend time in both concrete and barrel, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape is a ripe, voluptuous effort that has loads of texture and richness, yet stays light and fresh. Offering up knockout notes of blackberry, underbrush, licorice and black cherry fruit, this medium to full-bodied, open and supple 2012 will deliver the goods for upward of a decade. Drink now-2022.

Range:90-92 Points "

"Deep ruby. Complex, herb-accented aromas of cherry, dark berries, smoked meat and licorice. Smooth, dense and subtly sweet, with gentle acidity giving lift and verve to the cherry and blackcurrant flavors. Finishes with dusty, harmonious tannins, hints of peppery spices and licorice and very good persistence.

Range: 89-91 Points "
