Château Sixtine 2016 Cuvée du Vatican Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Massive and meaty yet finessed, this hefty blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre offers unctuous blueberry and plum flavors layered with smoke, bacon and leather. It's concentrated and fleshy but lingers on silky tannins and a violet-perfumed finish. Opulent in its youth it should improve with cellaring through 2036. Anna Lee C. Iijima
