Very bright, and juicy up front. Nice smooth tannins, with notes of dark berry and touches of spice. Nice!

While decent enough @ this price [the QPR of which is reflected by my score], I personally prefer the '15 Kirkland Sig Select Cotes du Rhone Villages @ the same price [assuming you're a COSTCO member], or **definitely** the '14 Tilia Malbec Mendoza, which 1/3 of the local COSTCOs I check still have @ $7.49, the Tilia also being a justifiable [IMHO] WA 90 pt wine. My reasoning: Either the Kirkland CdR or the Tilia offer more substance & potential than does this Pontificis, which I'd not keep beyond 2016.

Grenache? Check. Syrah? Check. Mourvèdre? Check. Fake Châteauneuf-du-Pape logo? Check. Trader Joe’s? Check. $6.99? Check. Shockingly good? Check.

Shy nose but more open on the palate. Simple and straightforward.

A Rhone blend from Languedoc that delivers for the money!
