" Kirsch, blackberries, crushed flowers, blood orange, and tons of spice all emerge from the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Quartz. It's one of the richer, sexier wines in the lineup, which is certainly what this vintage delivers in spades. Full-bodied and concentrated, with a beautiful mid-palate, it's going to evolve positively for 2-4 years and drink brilliantly for 20 years or more. This is an incredibly fine, elegant version of this wine."
