SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2014
Tightly coiled for now, this features an intense, vivid core of anise, blackberry coulis, plum paste and macerated fig fruit, with black tea, smoldering tobacco and warm ganache notes. Long and dense, but very silky, with gorgeous violet and pastis details lingering in the background. Should unwind with time. Best from 2017 through 2035. 390 cases imported.
RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2014
Up in the top handful of wines in the vintage (which should come as no surprise to anyone who follows this estate), the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, rich and layered Châteauneuf that doesn’t put a foot wrong. Made from 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah, it offers blockbuster notes of blackberry, liquid-violets, spice and serious minerality to go with awesome mid-palate depth and layers of sweet tannin. Like the Cuvee Chaupin, it will be better in another handful of years and thrill through 2027.
RP95+95–98 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2013
Most likely one of the top 2–3 wines produced, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a rough blend of 80–85% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre (which was harvested October 10) and the balance Syrah, that hit 15.4% natural alcohol. Seeing the same elevage as the 2011, it sports an inky purple color as well as spectacular array of black and blue fruits, violets, liquid flowers and underbrush to go with an energetic, seamless and full-bodied profile on the palate. Lighter weight than the 2007 and 2010, it possesses notable freshness, purity and elegance. It should benefit from short-term cellaring and thrill for upward of two decades. Drink 2016–2032.
VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2015
Inky ruby. Explosive aromas of dark berry preserves, incense and lavender, with a smoky overtone and bright minerality. Pliant and seamless in the mouth, offering intense, palate-staining cassis and blueberry flavors that are energized by juicy acidity. Shows real power and focus on the strikingly long finish, which features velvety tannins and a hint of candied flowers. There’s 15% alcohol here, which is actually quite low for this bottling, and I don’t detect any undue heat.
ST93+93–95 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Jan/Feb 2014
Inky ruby. Blackberry, blueberry and pungent herbs on the mineral-accented nose, with a floral topnote providing lift. Impressively sweet, lush and deep, showing sexy flavors of dark berry preserves, candied lavender and spicecake. Finishes very long and smooth, with supple tannins, lingering spiciness and outstanding clarity.

RP9797 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2014
The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is in the top 2–3 wines in the vintage. Possessing rock-star concentration and depth, full-bodied richness and loads of sweet tannin, it offers layers of ripe blackberry, graphite, licorice and toasted-spice aromas and flavors. One of the more powerful and structured efforts in the vintage, it nevertheless always stays balanced, graceful and light on the palate. Give it 2–3 years and enjoy bottles through 2027.
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2015
Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed bouquet of ripe dark berries, potpourri and sandalwood, with a mineral note adding vibrancy. Round and seamless on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a strong jolt of candied rose. Quite suave and approachable, finishing with solid punch, gentle tannins and lingering spiciness.
ST91+91–93 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Jan/Feb 2014
Inky ruby. Strongly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blackberry, blueberry, violet and smoky oak. Seamless and sweet, offering plush dark berry compote flavors and an exotic floral pastille quality. Becomes spicier with air and finishes long and gently tannic, with clinging sweetness and a hint of licorice.

Vivid ruby. Vibrant black raspberry, potpourri and Asian spices are complemented by hints of candied licorice and smoky minerals. On the palate, deeply concentrated, palate-staining red and dark berry preserves, with enlivening five-spice powder, fresh lavender and exotic blood orange. Silky, interwoven tannins give shape and focus to the extremely long, sweet finish; shows outstanding clarity and power.

JD9999 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - August 28, 2018
One of the gems in the vintage is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, and it’s about as beautiful an example of old vine Grenache as I could imagine. Sporting a deep purple color as well as a huge perfume of blackberries, black raspberries, garrigue, crushed flowers, and exotic spices, it hits the palate with a wealth of fruit, a stacked mid-palate, awesome purity of fruit, and a finish that won’t quit. Made from 100% old vine Grenache from the sandy soils of the Cristia lieu-dit, aged in one-third new barrels, it has a certain accessibility even today but will be at its best in 2–4 years and keep for 15+. It’s the finest wine ever made by Baptiste and readers need to find bottles of this elixir! (Jeb Dunnuck)
JD96+96–99 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - October 19, 2017
Even better (although in a very different style), the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes comes all from very old Grenache vines planted all in sandy soils. This behemoth offers awesome notes of blueberries, plums, violets and spring flowers, with hints of sandy/loamy/soil notes developing with time in the glass. Full-bodied, fat, unctuous and hedonistic, it stays balanced lively and fresh on the palate, with no weight. Sign me up. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2018
Ripe, but bright and fresh, with a lively mix of raspberry, red currant and bitter plum coulis flavors streaming in, pulling light tea, singed sandalwood and anise notes along. Shows lovely detail and well-embedded acidity through the finish. Drink now through 2035. 600 cases made, 150 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018
The pure Grenache 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes reached 16.5% alcohol yet carries it really well, showing just a trace of warmth. Cola, cedar and black cherry notes lead into a plush, full-bodied wine with supple tannins and remarkable length. Although it may age past a decade, there’s no real reason to defer gratification.
VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2018
Limpid ruby-red. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of cherry liqueur, Chambord and candied flowers, along with a subtle floral quality that gains strength with air. Energetic red berry and bitter cherry flavors are complemented by mocha and licorice flourishes that take a sweeter turn on the back half. Youthful tannins lend grip to a long, focused finish that strongly echoes the cherry and floral notes.

RP96+96–98 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018
The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes looks as if it will be a worthy successor to the awesome 2015 and 2016 bottlings. From tank, the Grenache shows lovely cherry-berry fruit, ample weight and richness and a long, silky finish, while the Mourvèdre from a new oak barrel stood up to the wood well, offering more red fruits, less alcohol and hints of toast and baking spices.
JD95+95–97 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - August 28, 2018
Deeper ruby/purple-colored, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes includes slightly less Grenache than normal and is 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, and the rest a mix of permitted varieties. It offers more blackberry, cassis, peppery herbs, and crushed rocks, with a beautiful sense of minerality. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated and focused, it shows an elegant, vibrant side to the vintage yet still has the expected Janasse power and depth. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
Saturated ruby. Displays intensely perfumed, spice-accented black and blue fruit, floral oil and candied licorice qualities on the nose. Offers powerful cherry liqueur, black raspberry, fruitcake and exotic spice flavors that tighten up through the back half. There’s surprising energy here given the wine’s volume. Velvety tannins frame a strikingly long, spicy finish that strongly echoes the cherry and floral notes.
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2019
Ripe and fresh, with an engaging beam of cassis, dark plum and boysenberry puree flavors, supported by light anise, graphite and sweet tobacco notes. Shows good juicy energy and a seriously long finish. Drink now through 2035. 504 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 24th Sep 2020
From centenarian Grenache vines grown on sandy soils in La Crau and Pignan, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Grenaches de Pierre is a perfumed beauty, redolent with hints of fennel, roses, orange zest and ripe cherries. Matured solely in concrete, there’s no oak influence, just a purity of fruit expression borne on a full-bodied but nearly weightless palate. Silky and long on the finish, this tour de force should still be drinking well in a decade.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2021
This has a nice sleek core of cassis and cherry paste flavors that show tension and cut, while notes of sandalwood, red tea and garrigue filter in throughout. A long, subtle sanguine thread laces up the finish. Approachable, but there’s also lots of intrigue that bodes well for cellaring. Drink now through 2036. 250 cases made, 70 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - October 6, 2020
Another beautiful wine from this family estate, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Grenaches De Pierre comes from a sandy portion of the famed La Crau lieu-dit (near Charbonnière) and is all Grenache brought up in tank and demi-muid. It too reveals a lighter ruby color as well as a heavenly perfume of dried flowers, incense, herbes de Provence, and peppery garrigue as well as kirsch and framboise-like fruits. With medium to full-bodied richness, no hard edges and a seamless texture, it’s ideal for enjoying any time over the coming 10–12 years, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it age a little longer.

JD9696 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 10/6/2020
As always, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Amiral G. is all Grenache that comes from a single parcel near the estate. An incredible bouquet of kirsch liqueur, seaweed wrapper, black licorice, and roasted garrigue gives way to a medium to full-bodied, powerful Grenache with a stacked mid-palate, beautiful tannins, and more power and richness than just about every other wine in the vintage. Nevertheless, like all great Grenache, it stays beautifully balanced and weightless on the palate. It’s already complex but promises 15 years or more of prime drinking. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2020
A beauty, with captivating raspberry, plum and black tea aromas and flavors and a silky, seductive feel, this glides through effortlessly. So stylish it almost floats by, but it leaves a mineral edge to linger persistently, keeping it grounded. Drink now through 2035. 300 cases made, 30 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

JD95+95–97 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
The first vintage for this single cuvée, which in the past would have made the two special cuvées of Domaine Saint-Préfert, the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape checks in as a blend of 75% Grenache and the rest Cinsault, Mourvèdre, and a splash of Syrah. Its deep ruby/plum hue is followed by a more reticent, full-bodied, powerful wine offering serious black fruits as well as notes of crushed stone, roasted herbs, licorice, and graphite. It’s another stunning wine from this estate that savvy readers will snatch up. It’s going to need 3–5 years of bottle age to show its true potential, but it’s a brilliant wine. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 5th May 2022
Isabel Ferrando informed me during my visit that she planned to eliminate the Reserve Auguste Favier and Collection Charles Giraud bottlings, folding those lots and the “tradition” Saint-Prefert Châteauneuf into a single, combined wine under the Famille Isabel Ferrando label. The resulting blend she showed as the 2020 Famille Isabel Ferrando Chateauneuf du Pape is a fine effort, with layers of cola-like spice and hints of garrigue layered against a lush backdrop of cherries and raspberries. Medium to full-bodied and almost creamy in texture, it finishes long, silky and mouthwatering. (Joe Czerwinski)

JD96+96+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/11/2022
The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape La Cuvée Du Papet is made in a more structured, age-worthy style and is 90% Grenache and 5% each Syrah and Mourvedre. Its slightly darker ruby color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of savory red and black fruits, ground pepper, garrigue, and chalky minerality. These all carry over to the palate, where the wine is full-bodied, has a dense, powerful mid-palate, lots of ripe tannins, and a great, great finish. It needs to be hidden for 4–5 years and will evolve beautifully over the following two decades. I suspect it will be one of the longest-lived wines in the vintage. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2023
An alluring wine, with a mix of ripe damson plum, red currant and spice cake wrapped around a core of firm iron. Reveals clove and apple wood smoke that add depth and warmth, and the long finish is powered by minerality and grainy tannins. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Best from 2024 through 2035. 500 cases made, 125 cases imported. (Kristen Bieler)

Alvaro Palacios Finca Dofí

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 98646

RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Sep 2022
The single-vineyard 2020 Finca Dofí comes from the 14 hectares of vines planted across three parajes (lieu-dits) in Gratallops, a blend of 83% Garnacha, 12% Cariñena, 4% Picapoll—a grape with low sugar and high acidity (good for climate change) that he regrafted some four years ago—and 1% white grapes: Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo, all fermented in oak vats with 10% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in large oak barrels (bocoyes and foudres) for 15 months. It has good ripeness, 14.5% alcohol and a soft texture with nice balance, good freshness and fine tannins. 18,778 bottles and some other larger and smaller formats produced. It was bottled in May 2022. (Luis Gutiérrez)
JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, September 9, 2022
What a charming nose, with scented blueberries, crushed violets, red berries, wild herbs and a hint of dark olive. Juicy and pristinely dry and honest on the medium-to full-bodied palate, rounded by ultra-fine tannins, which are silky and powdery. Quite effortless and naturally long. Drink now or hold.
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2023
A plush and harmonious red that starts quietly, with delicate notes of pureed raspberry, anise, thyme, violet and a streak of graphite- and stone-laced mineral slowly expanding on the silky palate. Long and seamlessly knit, with chalky tannins defining the sleek finish. Garnacha and Samso. Drink now through 2030. 1,300 cases made. (Alison Napjus)

JD9999 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/11/2022
The flagship from this great estate is the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Boisrenard, which is based on 80% Grenache and small doses of 17 other varieties. This deeply hued beauty offers a stunning bouquet of blackberries, scorched earth, licorice, ground pepper, and sappy garrigue. I always find a Burgundian-like texture on this wine, and the 2020 is no exception—this is one to put into a blind tasting of Grand Cru Red Burgundies and shock your friends. Medium to full-bodied, ultra-pure, with grippy, sappy tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish, it’s pure class all the way. It’s going to need at least 4–6 years of bottle age, but this is a wine you don’t want to miss, and one of the finest wines I’ve tasted from this estate. (Jeb Dunnuck)
JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, May 22, 2023
This very impressive Chateauneuf has stacks of black fruit aromas and stunning tannin structure, with a very long driving finish that’s plush and fresh. A cuvee of 80% grenache with all the other varieties that the appellation allows. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold. (Stuart Pigott)
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2023
Boasts beautiful red currant, licorice and spice cake flavors that are concentrated and rich, yet balanced by salty minerality, earth and fresh pepper highlights. Shows smoke and singed sandalwood that fill in the backdrop, while graphite laces the still-grippy finish. This needs a bit of time to unfurl. Best from 2024 through 2035. 188 cases made, 38 cases imported. (Kristen Bieler)

Domaine du Pegau Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Cuvée Réservée
2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 764

RP96+96–98 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 5th May 2022
I was even more impressed by the 2020 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée than the 2019. Boasting crazily complex floral scents, garrigue, raspberries and cherries, this is one incredibly perfumed example of Pegau. Medium to full-bodied, silky, elegant and long, this is quintessential Pegau. (Joe Czerwinski)
JS9696 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, May 22, 2023
A layered and well-balanced Chateauneuf-du-Pape with aromas of wild berries, dried herbs, leather, roasted meat and stones. It’s full-bodied with fine, firm tannins. Lots of layers and poise with a restrained character on the palate, despite the generous nature of the vintage. Complex and velvety with lots of cherry character and dried herbs towards the finish. Funnelled and structured with great focus and length. Better after 2025. (James Suckling)
VN9696 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2023
The 2020 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée is one of the strongest vintages for this wine in recent history. It is magnificent, soaring from the glass with pungent aromas of crème de cassis, ripe raspberry and strawberry, cured meat, tobacco, licorice, iodine and garrigue. Full-bodied, vibrant to the core and offering a multidimensional profile, this wine is really, really good. The Féraud family and the entire team deserve a round of applause for this sublime Cuvée Réservée, which will still be kicking ass 20 years from now. (Nicolas Greinacher)
JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 10/30/2023
Looking at the classic 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Réservée, it shows the ripe, round, opulent side to the vintage as well as classic Pegau notes of gorgeous black cherries, Provençal garrigue, sandalwood, and ground pepper, with some background meaty nuances. Medium to full-bodied, it has a layered, seamless mouthfeel, plenty of ripe tannins, and outstanding length. It’s a more forward style of Pegau, not far off the style of the 2018, but it will nevertheless keep for two decades. (Jeb Dunnuck)
JD93+93–95 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/11/2022
The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Réservée, which was tasted from multiple foudres, is solid as well, with the more elegant style of the vintage as well as classic Pégau goodness. Lots of peppery herbs, leather, Provençal spice, and some meaty notes define the bouquet, and it’s medium to full-bodied and balanced on the palate, with lots of classic Pégau style and flair.

JD95+95–97 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/11/2022
Not yet bottled, the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes is all very old vine Grenache from the sandy soils of the Cristia lieu-dit. Brought up in demi-muids and a mix of new and used barrels, it gives up a rocking bouquet of blackberries, ripe cherries, licorice, toasted spices, and violets. It’s gorgeous on the palate as well and is medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, elegant texture, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It’s rock star stuff that I’d buy in a second. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2024
Concentrated but not weighty, this has an ethereal quality to its attractive licorice, cherry pie and fragrant incense notes, shored up with chalky tannins and a dusting of graphite that offsets the warmth. Beautifully textured, with bitter plum and mineral notes alternating with holiday spices and apple wood smoke stretching out across the finish. Drink now through 2040. 100 cases made, 35 cases imported. (Kristen Bieler)
VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2023
Entirely made from old vine Grenache, the 2020 Châteaureuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes turned out well. It delivers pungent aromas of raspberry jam, strawberry compote, red and black plum, dried herbs, licorice, cloves, wood smoke and vanilla. The oak-derived aromas and flavors are very much up-front and will require some time to integrate. It’s impossible to ignore the underlying high quality, however, confirmed by ever-so-velvety tannins and refreshing acidity. (Nicolas Greinacher)
JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, May 22, 2023
The intense clove aroma is at the outer edge of typicity for this appellation. However, this Chateauneuf is simultaneously savory, dry and surprisingly elegant through the long balsamic and spicy finish. A pure grenache. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. (Stuart Pigott)
RP90+90+? pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Sep 2023
Aged in a fair bit of new oak (roughly one-third new barrels, one-third demi-muids and one-third older barrels), the pure Grenache 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes carries notes of vanilla and toasted coconut alongside hints of plum, cola and stone fruit. It’s full-bodied, framed by some slightly drying wood tannins and has a dusty finish. (Joe Czerwinski)

JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, November 19, 2023
This amazing Chateauneuf-du-Pape squares the circle of southern richness and spring-like freshness in spite of coming from a very warm and dry vintage. The stony minerality, saltiness and dried flower character wind together to form a dynamic whole, driving this gracefully across the palate. But I must also mention the savory and licorice richness that is so deftly wrapped around them. Very long, salty and velvety finish. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/11/2022
The 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape also showed well, with a lighter, elegant style that still brings plenty of intensity. Black cherries, mulberries, dried violets, and loamy earth define the bouquet, and it’s medium-bodied, balanced, and finesse-driven on the palate, with ripe tannins as well as a terrific sense of salinity on the finish. Give bottles 3–4 years and enjoy over the following 15+. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2024
This shows a lot of aromatic appeal, with dusty earth and singed incense notes covering a well of fresh cherry and red currant flavors. A gutsy, grippy style on the palate, with a cast iron spine bringing firm shape and underlying power. Slightly old-school, this still needs time to unfurl. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault. Best from 2025 through 2035. (Kristen Bieler)
RP93+93–95 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 5th May 2022
Tasted as a tank sample of the final blend, the 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape La Crau is a blend of approximately 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and 5% other permitted varieties, with about 30% whole bunches used in the ferments. Marked by ripe cherries and hints of complex garrigue notes on the nose, it’s full-bodied but also really elegant, with fine-grained, silky tannins, ample concentration and a long, surprisingly crisp finish.

JD9898 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Boisrenard is a Grenache-dominated field blend (80%) that also includes 15 other varieties. Brought up all in foudre, it boasts a dense purple hue to go with a sensational, full-bodied, multi-layered array of red and black currants, toasted spice, peppery garrigue, and new leather-like aromas and flavors. Slightly tighter and more backward than the classic cuvée, this warrants 4–6 years of bottle age and will be incredibly long-lived. Is this even better than the 2001 and 2016? (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2021
Rich and ripe, offering an alluring smoky edge throughout. Layers of warmed plum preserve and cherry compote roll through, picking up tobacco and warm earth notes along the way. Drink now through 2034. 188 cases made, 38 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, March 21, 2022
Deep nose of damson plums and black cherries with subtle spice and tobacco-leaf aromas. Rich and concentrated with a ton of healthy tannins that beautifully support the full body, the mineral acidity lighting up the long finish. From 70 to 100-year-old vines of all the 13 varieties allowed for this appellation. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
RP93+93+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 5th May 2022
The 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Boisrenard is 80% Grenache, with the balance a mix of the other permitted varieties. Fermentation took place in wood (including a small proportion of new barrels), with maturation in foudres. Scents of mint and garrigue accent black cherries and plum on the nose, and I thought I detected a hint of charred oak as well (tasted blind). Full-bodied, rich and velvety, this is a thickly textured, concentrated beauty, with a long, mocha-tinged finish. While it could use a year or two to soften, it should drink well for more than a decade. (Joe Czerwinski)
