Notes of sun-drenched black cherry and strawberry preserves are sonorous in this fruit-forward, piercing blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah. It highlights all of Grenache's red-fruited delights and soft, pillowy tannins along with a twist of Syrah's peppery, brambly spice. Delightful young, it should maintain peak through 2030 at least.
Brilliant ruby-red. Strongly perfumed scents of ripe red fruits and lavender are accompanied by exotic spice and blood orange nuances. Supple and expansive on the palate, offering sweet raspberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors underscored by a smoky mineral element. Well-concentrated but lithe as well, finishing juicy and quite long, with lingering, spice-tinged red fruit character and slow-building tannins.
Bright and juicy, with a ball of red licorice, plum and red currant paste flavors, pushed by fresh acidity, carried with a lively iron twinge throughout. Grenache and Syrah. Best from 2023 through 2035. 2,500 cases made, 700 cases imported.
The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Des Deux Soeurs is 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, all aged in concrete. It's a classic, peppery, garrigue, and savory cherry-driven 2019 offering ripe tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a great finish.
