Finally in the bottle after close to 30 months in barrel, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Not For Youâ€”100% Grenache planted in 1909â€”is a big, oversized wine that somehow retains intricate herbal and fresh-fruit notes. Hints of black tea accent black cherries on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is lush and warm yet finishes with briny intensity and outstanding length. Unfortunately, only a single barrique was produced.
