Isabel Ferrando Chateauneuf du Pape "Colombis" 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

"Lurid ruby-red. Expressive aromas of raspberry, cherry compote and candied flowers are energized by a smoky mineral topnote. Appealingly sweet and focused on the palate, offering intense red fruit preserve and spicecake flavors that deepen and spread out with aeration. Candied licorice and allspice notes appear on a very long, smooth finish that features rounded tannins and an exotic touch of five-spice powder." - Vinous *(92-94 points)*

The 2009 is nearly as profound. Deep ruby/purple, with loads of black raspberries, kirsch, licorice, incense and a hint of truffle as well as Provencal herbs, the wine is richer, more voluptuous and fruit-forward than the 2010, with exquisite concentration, definition and length. This must be hitting 15.5% in alcohol, given the glycerin and unctuosity of the wine, but nevertheless it comes across as fresh and lively.

This has terrific range, with blueberry, plum, red currant and black cherry fruit all mixed together against a backdrop of pastis, fruitcake and mesquite. The long, velvety finish holds everything together. A fruit-driven style, but lengthy and defined. Drink now through 2020.
