As I reported last year, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is impressive. While it's less flamboyantly aromatic than the Cuvée Réservée, it's more powerful and concentrated. Full-bodied and rich, it's loaded with potent raspberry fruit and silky tannins and boasts a finish that won't stop. Hints of roasted meat, lavender and thyme add complexity to the waves of fruit, which wash gently across the palate, exhibiting a lovely soft touch.

Juicy and focused, with a dense core of cherry paste, kirsch and plum preserve flavors supported by fresh acidity and racy tannins. Loads of bay leaf, garrigue and warm stone notes score the finish, where additional waves of fruit kick in, adding length and depth.
