Winemaker Notes

Ripeness and power: a clean, intense front presents beautiful red fruit and spice, with a touch of minerality. The silky tannin structure provides a long finish of exotic fruit flavors.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

This is a nicely balanced Châteauneuf-du-Pape, with a bright edge of acidity running through the red-fruit flavors of cherries and raspberries. It’s full bodied and a bit creamy in texture, but still crisp and firmly constructed, with a lingering touch of anise on the finish. Drink now–2025.

WS 92
Wine Spectator

This almost gushes forth, with very ripe plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit, but there's ganache and charcoal riding in quickly behind it for balance, and the finish has ample grip, with a singed apple wood note hanging in the background. Best from 2014 through 2026.

The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Clos de l’Oratoire, a blend of 80% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault aged in foudres (some of the Syrah is kept in new oak), exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue along with rich black raspberry and berry fruit intermixed with a notion of Asian spice. Seductive, medium to full-bodied and pure, this classic Provencal wine is slightly more evolved and forward than most 2010s.
