Perrin Chateauneuf du Pape Les Sinards is made from the traditional varieties of Chateauneuf du Pape from Chateau de Beaucastel's own vineyard and from other top quality growers in the appellation. Predominately Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre, the wine is rich and silky with a deep red color. With the gamy, earthy quality that Beacastel is know for, Les Sinards is long on the palate with rounded tannins.
"Lovely kirsch and plum cake aromas and flavors lead the way, with a silky palate of currant and mineral that glides through the long finish. Not as densely structured as the top 2005s, but pure and wonderfully balanced. Drink now through 2020. 8,330 cases made."
"The 2005 Perrin et Fils Chateauneuf du Pape Les Sinards exhibits greater ripeness than the 2006 but a longer and more complete mouthfeel, with medium to full body, and terrific concentration and richness for what is essentially a declassified, young vine Beaucastel cuvee blended with another parcel. This wine should drink well young but last for 15 or more years."
The Wine Advocate
"Deep ruby. Dark cherry and blackberry aromas are enlivened by zesty mineral and floral qualities, picking up sexy baking spices with air. Vibrant red berry flavors show very good depth. This midweight, made from the young vines of Beaucastel, finishes with pronounced sweetness. "
