Rotem & Mounir Saouma Arioso Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  562140

Glistening ruby-red. Extremely sexy, spice-accented aromas of ripe red berries, incense and potpourri, along with a potent, smoky mineral element that adds vivacious lift. Offers sweet, palate-staining raspberry, cherry pastry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that show remarkable definition and back-end thrust. Displays a compelling blend of richness and energy and finishes with outstanding clarity and almost undetectable, silky tannins that sneak in slowly. Score - 96-97. (Josh Raynolds,, Dec. 2019)
