Deep garnet and purple in color, with a purple rim. Rich in complex aromas, with notes of plum and cassis. Full-bodied, this will age well for years to come.
Pair with roasts, grilled meats, red meats, game and cheeses.
"A superb 2010, showing ample heft to its core of crushed fig, plum and blackberry fruit, beautifully laced with espresso, bay leaf and warm stone notes, and then all carried by the racy precision of the vintage, with ample but sleek structure and a long, seamless finish. Best from 2014 through 2027."
"Made from 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre (an unusual blend for Chateauneuf du Pape, but typical for Fortia), the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Baron reveals serious black raspberry and black currant fruit, sweet tannin, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, a layered, multidimensional character and a long finish.
Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points"
