Reviews
• Vinous / Antonio Galloni: 92 The 2016 Pape Star is quite powerful in this vintage. Ample and generous, with terrific fruit density, the 2016 has so much to offer. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal and spice all flesh out. In 2016 the Pape Star is decidedly exuberant. Best of all, it remains a terrific value. Floral notes add lift on the finish.
