Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed scents of fresh blueberry, potpourri and woodsmoke, with a suave floral quality emerging with air. Sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors gain weight with air, picking up a sexy floral pastille nuance and a touch of allspice. Impressively fresh and energetic, with a lingering note of dark berry preserves on the supple, gently tannic finish.

The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape (70% Grenache and 15% each of Syrah and Mourvedre) is beautiful, with medium to full-bodied richness, lots of sweet black raspberry fruit, graphite, bouquet garni and licorice aromatics, and sweet, building tannin that comes through on the finish. It shows the purity and balance of the vintage, and will dish out loads of pleasure over the coming decade or more.

Fleshy plum, fig and blackberry compote flavors race along, enlivened with licorice snap and singed alder notes. Fruit-driven, with good energy and a piercing hint of graphite on the finish to stay honest. The inviting profile will win this some fans. Drink now through 2025. 390 cases imported.
