Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2015 (1500ml)

$249

This has a drop-dead gorgeous core of cassis and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors that holds center stage but still allows notes of Lapsang souchong tea, anise, incense and shiso leaf to chime in. Very long, with a sublime feel through the mineral-tinged finish. So seductive already, but this will cruise in the cellar. Drink now through 2040... Wine Spectator

Sour at opening but with a little air this came around and evolved into a balanced wine with lots of spices

Amazing and ready to go right after opening. Tremendous variation on a vertical of 2014-2017. This is the pick for now, but 2016 for 20 years from now. Always great to taste at (from) the source.

By this point in the night, I wasn’t taking detailed notes. Ripe and concentrated, cherries and sweet spice. Aromas weren’t well developed on PnP, but a nice wrap-up to a Grenache-focused night.
