#31 Wine of the Year 2018
"Enticing, with bright, engaging raspberry, cherry and red currant fruit infused with gently roasted sandalwood and apple wood, garrigue and licorice root notes. A swath of tobacco underscores the finish, giving this an old-school hint. Best from 2020 through 2040. 2,500 cases made. -JM"

"Moving to the reds, the base 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape gives up a beautiful bouquet of ripe black raspberries and spice to go with a rich, unctuous, layered style on the palate. It’s no shrinking violet, has beautiful fruit, sweet tannin, and a great finish. I’d happily buy it."
