Warm raspberry and boysenberry confiture aromas and flavors are dominant in this lush, inviting style, but there's plenty of dried star anise, bay leaf, licorice root, worn leather and roasted juniper notes to fill out the chorus. The finish turns youthfully grippy, with a tarry edge holding sway and adding serious length. Try now, but cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2018 through 2030. By James Molesworth - Wine Spectator, Oct 2015.
The 2012 is a Châteauneuf-Du-Pape is an absolutely remarkable showing and one of most compelling wines from the vintage. As this begins to open it delivers complex aromas of dark cherries and sweet dark plums, layered with exotic spices, chocolate, licorice, floral, smoke and hints of leather all coming together in the glass. On the palate this is richly textured, backed by round tannins which are beautifully polished with no hard edges. It continues to show remarkable balance with excellent concentration of dark fruits, spices through the long seductive finish. This is already outstanding, and should continue to evolve gracefully for many years to come. The final blend consists of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 10% Counoise, 10% Syrah and 5% Cinsault. (Best 2017-2035). By Owen Bargreen - International Wine Report , Oct 2015.
