Alluring, with dark cherry, raspberry and blackberry puree flavors that are streamlined in feel, flecked with anise, mesquite and fruitcake hints as they drive through the focused finish. Finely beaded acidity keeps everything in place. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2022 through 2038. 1,555 cases made, 500 cases imported.

The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape is a normal blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre brought up in in a mix of tank and barrels. It has a beautiful, sumptuous bouquet of blackberries, black cherries, flowery incense, and spice. Rich, medium to full-bodied, polished, and loaded with fruit, it's one sexy yet beautifully balanced 2017 to enjoy over the coming decade.
