Press is not available on 2018 vintage yet, but here is what they said about the 2017 vintage:
The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Crous Saint Martin Hommage A L'An 1879 (80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre) is rock solid, with a sexy yet fresh style that's already a joy to drink. Sweet black raspberries, cherries, spring flowers, and spice all flow to a medium to full-bodied, seamless red that has polished tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. It has the ripe, sexy style of the vintage, yet still holds onto a terrific sense of freshness and elegance. It's a complex beauty that will keep for 10-15 years.

Piquant whiffs of chocolate, cardamom and clove mingle into black cherry and plum in this Grenache-based blend of Syrah and Mourvèdre. It’s profoundly ripe and concentrated, but shaded by earth and forest notes too. The palate is pliant, cushioned by soft, furry tannins. This hedonistic wine is irresistible already but should also improve further through 2030.
