the 2012 Domaine de Cristia Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (100% old vine Grenache aged all in 2-year-old barrels) is a total extrovert and is overflowing with sweet blackberry and raspberry styled fruit, licorice, rolled stones, and assorted mineral qualities on the nose. Very full-bodied and downright decadent, this still shows plenty of class and freshness, with superb mid-palate concentration, awesome purity, and masses of ripe tannin. It is a wine for unabashed Grenache lovers and will also have upwards of two decades of life.
