"Deep ruby. Complex, spice-dominated bouquet of dark berry preserves, incense and Asian spices, with a bright mineral quality adding lift. Stains the palate with sappy, sharply delineated red and dark berry liqueur flavors. Like all of Isabel Ferrando's '13s, this wine shows outstanding energy and fruit expression. Finishes spicy and very long, leaving notes of candied lavender and spicecake behind." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous

"Looking like the star of the show, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is made from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre, and comes from three separate terroirs: Les Serres, Le Cristia and Le Bois de la Ville. Fermented with 100% whole-cluster and aged 18 months in demi-muid, it offers fabulous aromatics (currants, garrigue, roasted meats and bouquet garni), medium to full-bodied richness and a layered, silky style. As with the Reserve Auguste Favier, the acidity is elevated, and will be something to watch, yet I think this will come together nicely once in bottle. Short-term cellaring should be the name of the game." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
