Tasting Notes: Far from a fruit forward Chateauneuf-du-Pape with ripe cherry aromas and flavours playing second fiddle to the barnyard, cinnamon, cardamom, earth, smoke and oak characters on the nose and palate. This blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and 10% Cinsault needs more time to blossom and come into optimum balance with bright acidity overshadowing the moderate tannins. Drink mid-2012-2017.
