Tasting Notes:

An excellent wine in the vintage, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape has more Grenache than the 2013 and checks in as 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% each of Cinsault and Mourvèdre. Aged in equal parts concrete tank and old oak, its vibrant ruby color is followed by perfumed notes of incense, dried flowers, pepper and black raspberry. Like the 2013, it has terrific sweetness of tannin, a full, layered mid-palate and a great finish. It will have a decade of longevity. Both the 2013s and 2014 from the Usseglio brothers are solid, and they have more texture and charm than most in the vintage.
