Chateau Beauchene 2012 Chateauneuf-du-Pape (GSM), $28.04-$35.99, 91 points, poured a confounding oxblood-red with a broad transparent wine ring.
Lovely strawberry aroma was accented by those of roses, herbaceous notes, and black cherry (excellent).
Medium-bodied with mouth-watering acidity, fine, grainy, and supportive tannin which managed flavors that were a delicate reflection of the aromas.
Finished intense and long with a flavor remarkably similar to Hot Tamales candy, accelerating tannin (dry red wine), the trailing palate, and a balance 14% alcohol.
Varietals were 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and 5% Mourvèdre.
