"The color reveals distinctive violet highlights. A refined and complex nose showing aromas of violets and fruits of the forest. On the palate a wine that is rich and powerful yet with a perfectly balanced and harmonious structure, and a long aromatic finish." —winemaker

Blend: 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre
"The only Châteauneuf made in the vintage, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape should be very good, if not outstanding. Showing a classic, peppery and dark-fruit-driven profile, it flows onto the palate with medium-bodied richness, a solid core of fruit and firm tannin. It should round into form nicely with another year of evolution and drink nicely for 5-6 years." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

"This has a lightly beefy edge to the core of steeped blood orange, damson plum and bitter cherry fruit, followed by singed cedar and alder notes on the finish. A touch taut in the end. Drink now through 2020. 250 cases made." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
