Product Overview

94 Points - Wine Spectator
"Displays superb ripeness, with raspberry and fig notes layered with alluring cocoa powder, dark licorice and sweet spice. Long and rich on the finish, this pumps out fruit and terroir in a modern-styled package." -JM Dec/2007

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"More modern in style than the classic cuvee, yet also more youthful and lively, the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve Sixtine (50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre) is a beauty! Exhibiting plenty of sweet oak in its ripe black fruits, spice, licorice and roasted meat bouquet, it’s full-bodied, concentrated and rich, with at least another decade of prime drinking." -JD Feb/2015

92 Points - Vinous
"Ruby-red. Cherry-vanilla, cassis and mocha aromas are sharpened by dusty minerality and fresh rose. Velvety red fruit flavors display excellent depth, picking up bitter cherry and dark chocolate on the finish. Shuts down with air, suggesting that this will need some cellar time." -JR Jan/2008

Varietal Composition: 55% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre
Production: 2,425 cases
