Looking at his traditional cuvee, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape (a blend of mostly Grenache) is a thick, massive effort that got a big "wow!"...Showing spectacular aromas and flavors of raspberry, spice, licorice and Provencal herbs, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, layers of sweet tannin and fantastic mid-palate depth. Fruit loaded and a hedonistic dream, it should dish out tons of pleasure over the coming decade. Drink 2014-2023. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Meaty red fruit. Very primary. Disjointed tannins. $55

Anise, prune, raspberry jam fills out a forward nose. Very round on the mouth with a touch a harsh finish. A brick in a velvet glove. Yet I can't get enough.

Late post but I really loved this wine. Very tight, interesting smooth complexity to it. Was on my mind for awhile after drinking...that's always a good sign right? Still a little more found of my Yankee Syrah's so far. They tend to just wallop you in the face and I like it.

In the woods with aromas of wet trees and black truffles, followed by sweet fig and citrus marmalade, licorice, and ripened red plums
