Wine Spectator – Intense raspberry and black currant compote notes form the core, which is dense in feel, with melted licorice, singed anise and warm fruitcake flavors filling in around the fruit. A solid, racy graphite edge supports all the elements through the long, grippy finish. Best from 2020 through 2035.
Wine Enthusiast – Decadent layers of blackberry and mulberry preserves are pierced by smoke and toast in this unctuous, glossy red. It’s a warming, piquant sip marked by clove, cardamom and black pepper, but balanced freshly too. Tannins are fine and feathery. Oak tones are a bit flashy in youth but should meld beautifully through 2031.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Somehow, I missed getting a note on the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape last year, but since the 2015 seems to be the current release in the United States, let's hope this is still of some value to prospective purchasers. It's a solid effort, featuring scents and flavors of cherries, leather and dried spices. Full-bodied, silky and clean, it goes down easily now, but it should last a decade or more.
About This Wine
Inky violet hue. Intense nose with red fruit aromas combined with complex smokiness. Tight and focused tannins on the palate. Enjoyable now but requires a few years of bottle maturation to fully integrate aging notes. Very elegant and refined finish.
