I love the structure of this wine. The Pape Star 2012 has little tannin and a great balance of fruit and acid. Listed as 52% Grenache, and I always get flat cola out of Grenache, and this wine meets my expectations. More like Dr Pepper. Oddly, rather than grilled meat, I crve creamy chocolate with this wine. Also has 20 Mourvedre, 18 Syrah, & 7 Cinsault. Picture a CDP with less spice.

Medium density and a fair balance. It was lacking some complexity. I loved the tobacco note.

Very good. Medium bodied, light plum and a little spicy. Would buy again 👌🏼
