2017 Famille Quiot Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Combes d'Arnevels, Rhone, France (750ml)
Black-cherry menthol and swathes of brambly, sun-burnt garrigue introduce this piercing black-fruited wine. Bold proportions of Cinsault and Syrah lend unexpected angularity to Grenache's decadent, plummier characteristics. Framed by a grip of fine-grained tannins and a stony, mineral undertow, it finishes on a lingering kiss of cassis. Approachable now the wine should improve through 2030
