Louis Bernard 2016 Domaine la Crau des Papes Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Whiffs of dried sage and anise lend complexity to fleshy, cherry and blackberry in this blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. It's glossy and sleek but edged by hints of crushed granite and licorice that linger through a long finish. Plush texture and open-knit fruit make it appealing already but rigid tannins should gain finesse through 2026 and likely beyond. Anna Lee C. Iijima
