Taut, bristling tannins and a rim of tobacco lend an upright feel to rich blackberry and black-fig flavors in this wine. A Grenache-dominant red blended with Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault sourced from a diversity of soils, it's a smartly balanced wine calibrating power and ripeness against bright acidity and twists of savory resin, tar and coffee grinds. While tightly wound in youth it should open from 2025 and improve well through 2030.

Deep, glistening ruby. Spice-accented dark berry and cherry on the nose, along with suggestions of garrigue, baking spices and licorice. Juicy black raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors show tight focus and become deeper and sweeter with air. The spicy note resonates on a clinging, energetic finish shaped by smooth, well-knit tannins.

The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape (65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, and 5% Cinsault) offers a wonderfully pure, seamless style that carries lots of black cherry and blackberry fruits as well as Provençal garrigue, saddle leather, and peppery spice. Rounded, seamless, and beautifully done, it's a smoking classic Châteauneuf du Pape to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years.

Bright and fresh, with a burst of red and black cherry and licorice notes leading the way. Backed by juicy texture and flashes of light spice and toast on the finish. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2025. 5,800 cases made, 1,100 cases imported.

Chante Cigale's 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape features low-intensity scents of strawberry compote on the nose, yet it's full-bodied and tannic on the palate. A mainly tank-aged blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, it comes across as neither here nor there, a wine that wants to be muscular and tannic but lacks the underlying material, or a wine that wants to be elegant but lacks the requisite charm and prettiness.
