"Brilliant ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, licorice, garrigue and incense are lifted by a smoky mineral topnote. Gently sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering ripe cherry and dark berry flavors that become livelier and spicier with air. Shows excellent clarity on the long, penetrating finish, which is framed by smooth tannins."

The 2014s were all tasted out of bottle and the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Château Sixtine is a terrific success in the vintage; it has plenty of fruit, medium to full-bodied richness, fine tannin and downright classy notes of blackberries, currants, garrigue and toasted spices. Made from 50% Grenache and 25% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, drink it through 2024.

"Solidly fleshy for the vintage, with tasty raspberry and plum preserve notes inlaid with light savory, bay leaf and cedar nuances. Offers a lightly taut feel through the finish, but this should unwind well enough with modest cellaring. Best from 2019 through 2028. 920 cases made, 56 cases imported."
