The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is a seductive, red fruited blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 8% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault (plus bits of Counoise and Muscardin) that's already dangerously drinkable. Garrigue scents accent raspberry fruit in this full-bodied but silky wine that ends on crisp notes of orange zest.

92 pts Wine Spectator

Juicy and youthfully compact, with a ball of cherry and plum compote flavors wrapped in red licorice accents. Light anise, mesquite and tea notes score the finish, which stays silky and fresh in feel. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2028. 600 cases made, 56 cases imported.

91 pts Vinous

Vivid ruby-red. Lively, spice-tinged red berry, licorice and garrigue qualities on the perfumed nose. Gently sweet and seamless in the mouth, showing good heft to the sweet raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors. Closes smooth and broad, displaying very good clarity, well-knit tannins and a subtle, lingering suggestion of candied flowers.
