Marius César 2019 Spiritus Pontificum Red (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Oak tones of sweet vanilla, pencil shavings and sap integrate elegantly in this powerfully ripe, voluminous red. A Grenache-dominant blend augmented by 10% each of Syrah and Mourvédre, it's concentrated with rich swirls of blackberry and red-plum flavors. With tannins that are taut yet fine-grained, it's welcoming young and should improve through 2030. Anna Lee C. Iijima
