Domaine de la Janasse Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2012 (1500ml)

$159

Up in the top handful of wines in the vintage (which should come as no surprise to anyone who follows this estate), the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, rich and layered Chateauneuf that doesn't put a foot wrong. Made from 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah, it offers blockbuster notes of blackberry, liquid-violets, spice and serious minerality to go with awesome mid-palate depth and layers of sweet tannin...

Black raspberry, iron and spice. Starting to enter a nice drinking window and should continue to improve over the next 5-10 years.

Perfect carne asada wine. Cumin, date cake, olives, rosemary and figs. Super rich but fine textured. Open and wonderful.

Bold, clean, fruit forward. This is fun to drink but kinda formulaic, probably a function of its youth. Great wine to drink now but will probably continue to get more interesting with age.
