Brotte 2017 Secret Barville Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Editors' Choice

Whiffs of strawberry and red-cherry preserves are edged by tobacco leaf, cinnamon and clove in this silky blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Matured 18 months in one-year-old oak barrels, it's a subtle, spicy red with a deep core of redcurrant and berry flavors. Pliant, feathery tannins make it ready to drink now but the wine is concentrated enough to improve through 2030 and hold longer still. Anna Lee C. Iijima
