Impenetrable black as night core with a deep dark red black hue. Lifted fresh black raspberry and black cherry aromas are trailed by liquorice allsorts, subtle earth, garden herbs and peppered incense notes. Dense, rich and bold, the palate is loaded with ripe black cherry, liquorice and blackberry fruit which oversees a back drop of lightly scorched earth, dried meats and spicy blackpepper characters . Robust tannins impart a slight firmness to the finish. Excellent depth with a long deeply fruited aftertaste.
Cellar 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews….
Showing similar to last year, the 2016 Châteauneuf Du Pape offers a classic bouquet of black raspberries, garrigue, and spice box, with a touch of minerality. It’s more rounded, fleshy, and layered than the more concentrated 2017, has plenty of upfront appeal, and will keep for 15+ years.
Drink 2019-2034.
