Tasting Note: The straight 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is made from 80% Grenache, 17% Syrah and 3% Mourvedre, from the La Gardiole and Palestor lieux-dits, that was aged 12 months in a combination of small barrels, foudre and stainless steel. Kirsch, dried garrigue, cocoa powder and brown spice all come together nicely in this medium to full-bodied, supple, downright sexy 2012. While the initial impression had me thinking it's best consumed earlier rather than later, it showed more structure and length with time in the glass, so my bet is that it will have upwards of a decade of longevity. Drink Date: 2015-2022. Score - 91. (Jeb Dunnuck, robertparker.com, Oct. 30, 2014)
