Domaine de Fontavin 2017 Terre d'Ancêtres Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Layers of raspberry and red cherry preserves penetrate this silky Grenache-dominant blend (augmented by Syrah and Mourvèdre). Matured primarily in concrete, it's focused on pure, hedonistic red fruit, but subtle nuances of crushed earth, pepper and thyme linger on the finish. It's fresh-faced demeanor is delightful young but concentrated enough to drink beautifully for at least another decade. Anna Lee C. Iijima
