Chateau la Nerthe 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes

Description

"There's a rich, decadent core of black cherry, plum and strawberry in this wine, but it's layered with piquant accents of anise, smoke, earth and fur. It's richly fruity but freshly composed and fringed by fine, persistent tannins. Ready to drink now, it should improve through 2030. " Wine Enthusiast 94 Points

"A ripe, lush style, with warm and inviting plum, fig and boysenberry confiture notes gliding through. Offers a beautiful polished feel, with suave anise and black tea flavors filling in on the finish while the fruit just sails through. Relies primarily on fruit, and you can't blame it for that. Drink now through 2030. 1,050 cases made, 100 cases imported.Wine Spectator 94 Points

"La Nerthe's 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes is a blend of approximately one-third each Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Eighty percent of the wine spent a year in new oak barrels, but much of that has been absorbed into the wine, and I see that my notes don't make reference to overt oak descriptors. Scents of raspberry and spice lead the way, followed by a firm, full-bodied palate. The tannins are present from front to back, but they're ripe and silky, lingering elegantly on the finish."
