Seth Kunin has been making wines since 1998. In his homage to the wines of Châteauneauf-du-Pape, he has made the Pape Star since 2003. I recently had the 2006 Pape Star Larner Vineyard and its now on my rebuy list. Predominately made of grenache (50- 60 %), Mourvedre and Syrah , this wine can be purchased at K&L for $17.99.
Great bargain for a lovely wine, bright red fruit flavors from the Grenache that is balanced with the spicy notes from the Mourvedre and Syrah. A delicious easy drinking wine that's sure to please. For the correct pronunciation of Pape, I'll refer you to Hugh Grant's best work to date.
