Domaine Font de Michelle Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2012

Vivid ruby. Ripe red and blue fruits on the pungent nose, complicated by nuances of candied licorice, lavender and smoky Indian spices. Smooth and fleshy on entry, then tighter in the midpalate, offering appealingly sweet, concentrated boysenberry and black raspberry flavors and a touch of vanilla. Expands very nicely on the finish, which hangs on with strong tenacity and sneaky tannins.

More like 3.5. Not as classic as we'd have liked but good. Great intensity and finish; but overall not huge fans.
