So sleek and clean, this full-bodied red combines beautifully spicy fruit, black currant, licorice and a touch of eucalyptus. Light-footed, it glides on the palate to a long and elegant finish. Seductive. *Top 100 Wines of 2002* (PM)
Saturated medium ruby-red. Liqueur-like nose combines red fruits, black cherry, spice cake, earth, chocolate and smoke, with a slight raisiny suggestion of surmaturite Velvety, sweet and concentrated, but also tightly wound and high-pitched, with an impression of healthy acidity. Revealed lovely cherry flavor as it opened in the glass. Fruity, dense and quite youthfully unevolved, finishing with firm tannic spine and subtle persistence. (ST)
Although restrained, the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape is sweet, ripe, medium-bodied, and understated for a wine from this appellation known for its full-flavored reds. (RP)
