Really sleek and focused, with a large core of plum and linzer torte fruit in reserve for now, while hints of mesquite, spice cake, black licorice and graphite flicker through on the finish. Dense and reserved, so cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2010 through 2025.
The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of smoked game, jammy black cherries and blackberries, full body, some of the classic licorice, garrigue, and meaty notes along with superb texture, moderate tannin, and good acidity. This is a beauty that should evolve for 15 or more years. (RP)
Deep red. Powerful red berry and cherry aromas, with complicating floral, mineral and herbal qualities adding interest. Silky red and dark fruit flavors are deep and sweet, with slow-building licorice and garrigue carrying into the finish. Finishes with a complex, persistent array of fruit and minerality.
