    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault. Matured in oak casks for 12-18 months, depending on the vintage.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault) is another top-notch effort. The wine is aged in tank (60%), foudre (30%) and 1- to 4-year-old small barrels (10%). Sweet raspberry, black currant, and cherry fruit intermixed with licorice, lavender and tobacco leaf jump from the glass of this perfumed 2009. With outstanding ripeness, a plush, evolved mouthfeel and sweet tannins, this beauty is already complex and delicious. It should age well for 7-8 years.
    Range: 90-92
