Black red color with black hints. Thoroughbred and rich nose of black berries, licorice, dark chocolate and oriental spices. Powerful mouth. Sensual tannic structure, dense and velvety. The finale, finely oaky, still reveals new aromas with smoked , roasted and mentholated notes.

I was disappointed by the showing of the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape les Hesperides, a 50-50 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre that's aged in a combination of demi-muids and stainless steel. Firm tannins frame baked, pruney fruit flavors, so if you're more forgiving of those, you may like it more than I did.
