A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% each Cinsault and Mourvèdre, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape is full-bodied, rich and round. Despite being a touch on the warm side, it's deceptively easy to drink, with sexy flavors of raspberries and chocolate that glide to a smooth, lingering finish. WINE ADVOCATE

Deep crimson. Expansive aromas of raspberry liqueur, garrigue and licorice, plus a smoky mineral topnote that adds urgency. Takes on darker fruit character with aeration, showing impressive concentration as well as vibrant, spicy lift to the bitter cherry and black raspberry flavours. The floral note comes back strong on the impressively long finish, which is given shape by smooth, well-knit tannins. JOSH RAYNOLDS, Vinous
