Domaine de Cristia 2006 Vieilles Vignes Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

This old vine cuvée draws upon 80-year-old Grenache, vinifed in cement and then aged in used barriques. The result is a wine marked by touches of coffee, chocolate and vanilla but dominated by plush layers of cherries and spice. Gentle tannins linger on the finish, but this is delicious now. Drink through 2016. Joe Czerwinski
