Domaine de Cristia Renaissance Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

$67.95

This has an intense core of crushed plum, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, draped with melted licorice notes and backed by a wave of warm fruitcake. Hedonistic for sure, but accents of anise, violet and singed apple wood dart around, adding extra facets of intrigue to hold your attention... 600 cases made. Wine Spectator

2015. 9.3-9.4+. Decanted 3+ hours. Excellent young CDP: Black fruits, stone and tar flavors dominate, with some needed tartness/acidity showing up after 4 hours and smoothing out some slight smoky/oak tannins. Evolved all night. Older vintages have been smooth, earthy and Bordeaux-like, and this vintage could easily get to a 95+ level in 4-5 years. $56 at Bottle King, higher elsewhere.

Dusty bouquet. With an aroma of dark cherries after swirling. Silky in the middle then a burst of bold dark cherries. Then a dry tannic finish.
