2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Deus Ex Machina, Clos St. Jean

“The largest-scaled and structured of the lineup, the 2012 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Deus-Ex Machina is a blend of 60% tank-aged Grenache and 40% barrel-aged (demi-muid) Mourvèdre. Deep, concentrated and dense, with a massive core of dark berry and currant fruit, graphite, ground pepper, pan drippings and dusty earth aromas and flavors, this blockbuster effort is incredibly full-bodied in the vintage, yet never puts a foot wrong. My guess is that it will require a handful of years in the cellar and then age gracefully for two decades.”
