An intense purple color is followed by ripe red fruit aromas, such as sweet black cherry. The palate reveals clearly the aromatic complexity: spices and black fruit are boasted with soft tannins. The finish is long with aromatic hints of licorice and pepper. Red raspberries, star anise and hints of cinnamon.
It will accompany game, red meat or meat in sauce and strong cheeses. - Winemaker Notes

"The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieux Terron (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre) sports a deep ruby/purple hue as well as a complex, layered, nicely textured style revealing ample red and black fruits along with notes of nori, herbes de Provence, and ground pepper. It should drink nicely for 7-8 years, if not upwards of a decade."
