Chateauneuf du Pape La Paillousse red 2021

A darker, crunchier version, with brambly berry and cassis notes that are ripe and showy, yet densely packed. Boasting tobacco, black pepper, pastis, charred mesquite and vanilla accents, this is grounded by smoldering iron and slightly chewy tannins. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2030.
