Domaine de Mourchon, Châteauneuf du Pape 2015, Rhone, France
Tasting Note: Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a pronounced-intensity, aromatic nose of rose petal, violet blossom, raspberry puree, blackberry essence and red currant.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied GSM blend has concentrated black-fruit flavors buttressed by medium-plus acidity and a concentrated Northern-Rhone character that make it a special treat.
