"This energetic red offers a big ball of kirsch wound tightly with licorice, graphite and raspberry coulis notes. Shows lots of bright spice accents through the finish, which is carried by finely beaded acidity. Offers serious latent grip. Best from 2020 through 2035. 2,740 cases made." Wine Spectator 94 Points
"The stunning 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape is a wine to buy a case of as it has beautiful concentration and depth, as well as the elegance, purity and finesse that’s the hallmark of the estate.
Hold onto your hats with these latest releases from proprietress Isabel Ferrando, as they’re easily some of the most badass 2015s I was able to taste. If fact, they resemble a hypothetical mix of the 2007 and 2010, and I’m just hoping they show this well from bottle. In addition, while this estate is mostly known for their reds, don’t miss the whites, as over the past 4-5 years they’ve risen to the top of the heap in the appellation. Surprisingly, I wasn’t able to taste any 2014s from Ferrando, but her 2015s are some of the most impressive barrel samples I’ve tasted from her, and they’re more reminiscent of her 2007s (maybe with a touch of the 2010s) than her more recent vintages, which leaned heavily towards the fresher, more elegant end of the spectrum."
