Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2012

90+ Quite pleasantly surprised on this one given some commentary on other sites. Opened a Magnum bottle and it is showing well. Deep purple color, plum and blackberry fruit, a hint of spice, silky smooth. I'm not sure how much longer this has left in the bottle, but I don't think it's a short life left. Time shall tell! — 15 days ago

Rich black cherries and kirsch-like notes from the intense, ripe, old vines CdP fruit, Syrah and Mourvèdre still providing some lovely structure, this is absolutely a beautiful medium-aged CdP with nice length, just lovely!! — 2 months ago

Terrific nose. Huge kirsch perfume. Stone. Raspberry. So clean, so precise and really refined. High toned and floral as well. Tons of fresh herbs. A killer CDP nose and zero heat and it’s 15%. Palate is ripe and juicy with good complexity and concentration. Powerful and sleek but also a hint of CDP heat. 15% is 15%. But good chewy tannins and cooling offset to the fruit that makes the 15% workable in the context of the wine and appellation. — 2 months ago

Probably the best wines at higher alcohol contents. Usually hides it very well.

Agreed but sometimes they can be out of hand. For me 2015 Pegau de Capo is an example of too hot. 16% plus and tasted like vodka.

They hide it well when they do. When they don’t, they really suck.
