La Ferme Du Mont Chateauneuf-Du-Pape 2012, RP 94
Grapes: Shiraz/Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre.
This is a wine that will slip through the gate without anybody noticing just as you let a good woman get away. It punches above its weight which is remarkable.
On the nose, lots of earth and leather, black fruit, dark cherry, and licorice. Red currant is present as well as chocolate, tobacco and oak, some spices including pepper to keep tannins in place. Some minerals are in the mix which gives Neuf-Du-Pape consistency and length. This wine has long legs.
