Winemaker Notes
A beautiful clean ruby color. The nose will reveal aromas of cherry, mulberry, and fine spices. Sensual mouthfeel expressing depth and smoothness with aromas of kirsch, blackcurrant, followed by fine spices such as thyme, licorice, and white pepper. Tannins are present but are polished and silky. Complex wine with roundness, power, and a long mouthfeel.

Blend: 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre

Rated 93 Points Jeb Dunnuck
The 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A L’An 1880 is cut from the same cloth, with charming Provençal notes of peppery garrigue, licorice, new saddle leather, and assorted red and black fruits. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has a touch more concentration and depth, ripe tannins, and outstanding length. It will drink nicely for 10-25 years. Range: 91-93
