"Elegance, sweetness, and delicacy. Already showing delicious fruit, this wine will hit its apex within 5 to 15 years." —winemaker

Blend: 75% Grenache, 25% Syrah
"Gorgeous, pure floral, raspberry and kirsch aromas lead the way, followed by intense cherry and blackberry fruit allied to substantial yet silky tannins. The long mineral- and shiso leaf-tinged finish lets the elements drape beautifully. Best from 2016 through 2030. 800 cases imported." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

"The classic 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape checks in as a destemmed blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah that spent 18 months in barrel. Offering up impressive kirsch, black raspberry, dried spices and garrigue, this medium to full-bodied 2012 has an elegant, seamless texture, fantastic purity and sweet tannin that emerges on the finish. There's certainly a polished, slightly modern feel here, but it's perfectly balanced and loaded with character. Enjoy this beauty over the coming 8-10 years." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
