Château Simian 2016 Les Grandes Grenachières d'Hippolyte Grenache (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Made from 100% Grenache, this silky red highlights lip-smacking black-cherry flavor against a kaleidoscope of granite, smoke and dried-herb complexities. It's intensely juicy and powerfully concentrated but not at all overextracted or dense. Although appealing already for its vibrantly fresh fruit, the fiery tannins should meld better from 2021. This wine will improve through 2030, likely further. Anna Lee C. Iijima
