94pointsDomaine de la Solitude 2017 Barberini Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Cellar Selection

The nose on this wine is closed and earthen initially, but time and aeration coax out pristine strawberry and rapsberry flavors accented by spicy notes of cocoa and licorice. It's a rich, intensely ripe blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, lifted by a spray of savory herbs and a touch of smoked meat. Firm tannins need time to meld but this bottle should improve through 2030 and hold further still. Anna Lee C. Iijima
