The Domaine de Saint Paul Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a blend of 70% Grenache 30% Syrah from vines averaging 40 years old. It opens with seductive aromas of red and dark berries and ripe plums coupled with dried savory herbs, smoked sandalwood, exotic spices and scorched earth. On the palate this is full-bodied with remarkable depth and concentration. It possesses layers of juicy red and dark fruits, along with herbal and earthy flavors that expand into the long finish. This is already showing remarkably well it should also continue to age for beautifully.
