Deep red. Knockout nose combines roasted raspberry, plum, tobacco, coffee and game. Fat, lush, round and seamless, with captivating sweetness and spice. Complicating notes of game, pepper and black olive. Finishes very long, with lush tannins. Quintessential traditional Chateauneuf. (ST)
Mature, with a soft, caressing texture that allows the dried currant, sandalwood, spice box, grilled herb and cedar notes to fan out and linger on the slightly dusty finish. (JM)
The 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape is a big effort, displaying spice, pepper, and tannin. Its dense ruby/plum/purple color is followed by a full-bodied wine with the tell-tale kirsch flavors, and nicely-layered fat and texture. It is an impressive Chateauneuf du Pape with lots of firmness and spice. (RP)
