2015 Guillaume Gonnet Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge “Bel Ami”
On Sale $34.99 (1.5L $69.99)
Deep ruby. Cherry, blackberry, licorice and a hint of smokiness on the fragrant nose. Concentrated bitter cherry and dark berry flavors are sharpened by a suggestion of peppery spices that builds in the glass. Chewy and gently sweet on the youthfully tannic finish, which leaves behind notes of dark chocolate and candied lavender.
