Always the Châteauneuf impersonator, and usually a great wine, Randall Grahm's '95 version is dense as can be. A rich, aromatic nose leads to a spicy, raspberry-packed mouthful. Would be great to try alongside Beaucastel or Le Nerthe. This is a can't-miss red heavy on Syrah and Mourvèdre. Plenty of attitude and flavor.
